Syrian Kurds say they are indicating targets as U.S. steps up Kobani strikes

MURSITPINAR Turkey/BEIRUT (Reuters) - The United States and its allies have dramatically stepped up air strikes in the past two days near the Syrian town of Kobani, where Kurdish defenders said they had given the Americans target coordinates to try to halt an Islamic State assault. The U.S.-led military coalition said it had bombed Islamic State targets in and around Kobani nearly 40 times in the space of 48 hours, around triple the pace of last week. A four-week siege of the mainly Kurdish town on the border with Turkey has become a focus of the U.S.-led effort to halt the militants, who have seized swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq #United States #India #Syria #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Argentina #Latin America #opinion
