Video shows massive smoke cloud from Kobane

A conflict has been raging in and around Kobane since mid-September

Published: Updated:

New footage showing the immediate aftermath from an explosion in the Kurdish Syrian border town of Kobane – besieged by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria militants – has emerged online.




A conflict has been raging in and around Kobane since mid-September, when ISIS launched an offensive to take over the Kurdish town in mid-September where fighting has killed a reported 500 people and forced 200,000 others to flee across the border into Turkey.




U.N. officials have warned of a possible massacre in Kobane, if the militants capture the city which they have been attacking for the past three weeks.
