US flip-flops on buffer zone as ISIS advances

The Pentagon said coalition airstrikes have pushed some Islamic State fighters out of Kobane, but that the city, and other towns, may still fall to the terrorist organization, as the US does not yet have a "willing, capable" partner on the ground in Syria. Coalition airstrikes targeted the IS with six airstrikes near Kobane, two strikes in Raqqah, and one strike in Deir Izzour. Warplanes also carried out strikes in the southern Aleppo countryside; in Idlib; and in Deraa, near Deraa city and also near al Harrah Hill, which is held by the Al Nusrah Front and the Islamic Front.
Over 400 people are said to have died already in three weeks' fighting in Kobane. The Ahrar al Sham launched an offensive targeting the M'amel al-Defa defense labs. Al Nusrah, the Islamic Front, and rebels battled regime forces in Aleppo; in Damascus; and in Quneitra.
