ISIS has 'impaled' itself on Kobani: top US envoy

ANKARA: ISIS has "impaled itself" on Kobani by pouring fighters into the strategic Syrian town so they can be bombed by the U.S.-led coalition, a senior U.S. envoy said Thursday.

Retired General John Allen, coordinator of the coalition against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, told Turkey's Milliyet newspaper an estimated 600 ISIS fighters had already been killed in airstrikes and the group would ultimately be defeated in the battle for the town.
