The battle for Kobane: Peshmerga, FSA join fight against IS group

The battle of Kobane has been raging for weeks, but the cavalry may finally be on its way. A group of Free Syrian Army fighters, with estimated numbers ranging from 50 to 150, have arrived in the Syrian city of Kobane. About 150 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters from Iraq are also said to be on their way to join the fight. The question now is whether or not this reinforcement will be enough to tip the battle in favour of those trying to defend Kobane from Islamic State group militants.
