    Smoke rises after an U.S.-led air strike in the Syrian town of Kobani Ocotber 8, 2014. U.S.-led air strikes on Wednesday pushed Islamic State fighters back to the edges of the Syrian Kurdish border town of Kobani, which they had appeared set to seize after a three-week assault, local officials said. The town has become the focus of international attention since the Islamists' advance drove 180,000 of the area's mostly Kurdish inhabitants to flee into adjoining Turkey, which has infuriated its own restive Kurdish minority and its NATO partners in Washington by refusing to intervene.

Kurdish fighters are coordinating with the US-led coalition against the Islamic State (IS or ISIS) militants trying to capture the mostly Kurdish town of Kobane in northern Syria, a monitoring group said on 18 October. 'There is close coordination between the two sides,' said Rami Abdel-Rahman, the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Abdel-Rahman added that the jihadists were hiding their artillery in residential houses in Kobane to protect the weaponry from allied aerial bombardment. Last month, the United States and Arab allies launched a campaign of airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria. The coalition has intensified the bombardment in the past few days, slowing down the militants' advance into Kobane. Farhad Shami, a Kurdish activist inside Kobane, said the allied airstrikes in the past week have destroyed 'key strategic' posts manned by the Islamic State. (EPA/TOLGA BOZOGLU)

    @ GREEK71AIRBORNE: I didn't know the Hellenic Forces also sported the Panzerhaubitze 2000. Very interesting. The camo looks nice.

    @ m4rs75: Excellent pictures! Hopefully the B1 (such a fine looking bird!), F15, F16, F18 in the pictures hit the right targets and help the defenders of Kobane in battling the IS forces. The explosion from the suicide mission is almost unbelievable. Let's just hope the Kurds and the USAF deal with the threat in an orderly manner...
