Two days after ISIS launched suicide bomber attacks on the Syrian town of Kobani, Kurdish fighters say they have fully secured the town and killed more than 60 members of the terror group. Meanwhile in the east, ISIS launched another attack on government-held areas of Hasaka city, prompting the government to call on citizens to take up arms. “The people of the governorate and its surroundings continue to sign up with the Syrian Arab Army in its fight against terror,” a message on state television read.
