Kurds push back in Kobane

UK's Daily Mail Online report of October 17, 2014 is headlined, "'We've reduced ISIS to just two pockets of hold-outs' boast Kurds after bloody fightback to stop fanatics taking control of border town of Kobane."

The article by John Hall notes the "remarkable fightback" by Kurdish troops, "assisted by U.S. and Arab airstrikes," has allowed the Kurds to "reclaim" the besieged city, reporting that "Islamic State militants have been almost entirely driven out of the Syrian city of Kobane following a remarkable fightback by Kurdish forces who vowed to either defeat the terrorists or die trying."

Hall noted that "Turkish and U.S. officials last week said that ISIS was on the verge of taking Kobane from its heavily outgunned Kurdish defenders after seizing strategic points deep inside the town."

Jeremiah the hebrew prophet foresaw the rise of the Medes -- today the Kurds of Kurdistan -- as a military power capable of invading and capturing "the land of Babylon" in the sixth of nine judgments. With the experience and successes of the Kurdish forces against the Islamic State, the possibility of this rise seems less and less remote.
