Turkey: Syrian border town about to fall to IS

The Associated Press

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) Turkey's president says the Syrian border town of Kobani is about to fall to militants from the Islamic State group.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan made the comments Tuesday during an address to Syrian refugees at a camp in Gaziantep province, near the border with Syria.

Erdogan said aerial bombardments alone may not be enough to stop the Islamic State group and called for support of opposition forces.

"There has to be cooperation with those who are fighting on the ground."

Just days ago, Turkey said it wouldn't let Kobani fall.
