U.S. launches heaviest bombardment yet against ISIS in defence of besieged Kurdish town of Kobani


Originally posted on National Post | News:

NORTHERN IRAQ and WASHINGTON — The U.S. air force launched its heaviest bombardment yet in support of Kurdish forces in northern Syria as they began a fightback against jihadists around the embattled town of Kobani.

The Kurds reclaimed a hill west of the town, taking down an Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) flag visible from the Turkish border which had become a symbol of the advances made by the terror group in recent weeks.

They were helped by 21 air strikes over two days, the U.S. military said. “Indications are that air strikes have slowed” ISIS advances, a statement said.

“However, the security situation on the ground there remains fluid, with ISIL attempting to gain territory and Kurdish militia continuing to hold out,” said the statement, using another acronym for the terror group.

Within two months, Ebola could be increasing by 10,000 cases every week in West Africa, WHO says

LONDON — West Africa could see up to 10,000 new Ebola cases a week within two months, the World Health Organization said Tuesday, also confirming the death rate in the current outbreak has risen to 70%.

WHO assistant director-general Dr. Bruce Aylward gave the figures during a news conference in Geneva. Previously, WHO had estimated the Ebola mortality rate was at around 50%.

Aylward said the new rate confirmed it was “a high mortality disease,” and that the U.N. health agency was still focused on trying to get sick people isolated and provide treatment as early as possible.

He told reporters that if the world’s response to the Ebola crisis isn’t stepped up within 60 days, “a lot more people will die” and that health workers will be stretched even further dealing with the spiraling numbers of cases.

‘Blood of Jihad': ISIS training video promises recruits they will leave Iraq’s battlefields as ‘martyrs’

A slick promotional video has been released showing Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham recruits at a so-called desert “graduation ceremony.”

The three-minute film, called “Blood of Jihad,” shows the terror group’s latest members doing kung-fu style martial arts routines and learning how to strip down Kalashnikov machineguns.

Apparently shot in Nineveh province, northern Iraq, it features about 100 young men being trained in the ways of insurgent warfare.

It is the latest promotional video produced by ISIS, which has been at pains to burnish its global image in the minds of disenchanted Muslims.

Last week another jihadi film was released, produced in a training camp in Kirkuk.

The group has even published an online propaganda magazine called “Dabiq” – named after a key site in Muslim apocalypse theology where the “final hour” of humanity will occur.
