    ISIS In Kobani And Raqqa Facing Huge Losses: Mounting Toll And Injury as Kurds Step Up Offensive

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:46 am

    Thank God for the Kurds and their ability to fight. It sounds like they are having more success now. Hopefully, this means we are finally arming them with heavy weaponry. It also helps that we’ve sent Americans to help in the fight and direct it. It’s hard to know what to believe, though. I wouldn’t trust a word that comes out of John Kerry’s mouth. Or, anyone else in that administration, for that matter. The State Department is especially good at lying. Other reports say the U.S. airstrikes aren’t doing that much to help. They haven’t been aggressive enough under our pacifist, Muslim militant loving President.

    The ISIS in Kobani is facing severe damage and losses. The Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani has become the theatre of war between the Islamic State radicals, Kurds and the U.S. led allies who are pounding the town with air strikes to retrieve the town.

    According to a U.K. based monitoring group, the Islamic State fighters have faced severe reverses including hundreds of deaths and injury at the Kobani town, bordering Turkey. Highlighting the rising toll of ISIS cadres, Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that at least 50 militants had been killed in the last couple of days from suicide bombings and clashes with Kurdish fighters.

    Several deaths were also caused by the air strikes by the U.S. led forces. Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the observatory said 30 air raids targeted Islamic State bases on the northern outskirts of Raqqa province and they inflicted huge damage to ISIS fighters, reported RFRL News.

    The sustained air attacks and ground offensive have loosened the grip of Islamic State fighters, who took control of Raqqa last year and made it their capital. Last week, 95 people were killed and hundreds were injured when Syrian warplanes pounded Raqqa. The dead also include some civilians.

    Meanwhile, the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the U.S. led coalition has been able to cause some serious damage to Islamic State insurgents in Iraq and Syria. The U.S. airstrikes evidently helped the fight against ISIS in the region. John Kerry claimed that the siege of Kobani had been loosened and within Syria ISIS command facilities have been destroyed and its oil infrastructure has also been heavily damaged.
