Hundreds of ISIS Fighters Killed in U.S. Airstrikes

|

Fierce U.S. airstrikes killed "several hundred" Islamic State fighters in and around the besieged Syrian city of Kobani, helping to swing some of the momentum back to the ethnic Kurds who have been battling the militants for months.

With warplanes active above, fighting on the streets, where Islamic State and Kurdish fighters have battled block by block for control of the city on the Turkish border, was quiet. Fox News correspondents stationed just across the border in Turkey, in view of the city, saw very little daylight fighting early Thursday, and sources inside Kobani said the terrorists have been beaten back by the huge U.S. coalition air barrage of the last two days.

"We have seized back quite some territory yesterday," a Kurdish commander who gave her name as Dicle told Reuters early on Thursday.
