(Worthy News)-- After a bloody assault Thursday, Islamic State fighters re-entered the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani, five months after Kurdish forces retook the strategically important border city, the Washington Examiner reported.
Approximately 32 militants drove five cars through Kurdish lines in the early morning hours, then set off a large car bomb and a second one hours later, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group. The Islamic State fighters attacked from three sides wearing Kurdish and Free Syrian Army uniforms and several blew themselves up using explosive belts.
In the ensuing chaos, fierce fighting erupted between the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) and the Islamic State militants, leading to dozens of people being killed or wounded, the group reported. --Source
