IS-krigere forkledt som kurdere angrep Kobane torsdag og drepte mange sivile, opplyser kurdiske kilder til nyhetsmedier. De snakket kurdisk, banket på dører og ba folk komme ut. Da de gjorde det ble de skutt.

Idriss Nasan, speaking to CNN by phone from the Kurdish-held city in northern Syria, described a complex attack Thursday morning in which ISIS militants entered Kobani from the east and west in disguise.

«They were wearing YPG (Kurdish security forces) uniforms, so when people saw them they did not fear them, and they (ISIS) opened fire. Many civilians lost their lives,» he said.

Eyewitnesses said some gunmen spoke Kurdish and knocked on doors telling locals to come out. «People rushed out and were killed,» Nasan said.

IS bedriver ren terror mot sivilbefolkningen.

In the Kurdish village of Barkh Butan near Kobani, ISIS militants killed at least 20 people, including some who were «executed,» according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Activists say ISIS has detonated up to three car bombs near the Syrian-Turkish border.

IS ser ut til å behandle den kurdiske sivilbefolkningen som fiender o

g gjør ingen forskjell på væpnede og ubevæpnede. Kurderne er den folkegruppen som er væpnet og har gått på offensiven mot IS. Derfor skal de straffes.

Ved en annen by lenger øst, kontrollert av regjeringshæren, brukt IS bilbomber.

In al-Hasakah, about 270 kilometers (170 miles) east of Kobani, heavy clashes were underway, the SOHR said, and the Syrian air force is conducting airstrikes in the area.

ISIS militants detonated at least one car bomb at a Syrian military checkpoint and have taken control of some neighborhoods in the southern part of the city, according to the group.

The SOHR reported at least 30 killed among regime forces and 20 dead from ISIS’ ranks. CNN cannot independently confirm the casualty numbers.

På NRK torsdag spurte programleder Grosvold hvorfor IS angriper en by som de tapte. Hvorfor nå? – Kurderne presser Raqqa, var svaret. Et annet og opplagt svar er at det er Ramadan og under Ramadan intensiveres den hellige krigen. Men det er som det svaret er utenfor NRKs horisont.

YPG står nå bare 5,5 mil fra Raqqa og må omdisponere styrkene.

ISIS moved a convoy of nearly 100 military vehicles packed with arms, ammunition and fighters from the countryside east of Raqqa to one of the terror group’s bases within the city, said Rami Abdelrahman, the director of the SOHR.

I sør presser en allianse av opprørere, med Nusrafronten i ledelsen, regjeringshæren i Daraa, byen der det syriske opprøret mot Assad startet. Det er ingen tvil om at Assad nå er på defensiven.

In the south of Syria, an alliance of 51 Islamist rebel factions, including the al Qaeda affiliate Nusra Front, clashed with Syrian regime forces Thursday in Daraa, according to SOHR.

The monitoring group said it received a video statement from the alliance announcing the launch of a military operation named «Southern Storm» in an effort to drive out regime forces which control parts of the city of Daraa and surrounding areas.

SOHR said clashes are ongoing, but a leading Syrian newspaper, which leans editorially toward the regime, claimed the army repelled the rebel attack.
