The United States has continued its bombardment of Islamic State forces near the Syrian city of Kobani along the Turkish border. According to U.S. Central Command, U.S. military forces conducted six airstrikes near Kobani on Sunday and Monday. In a bid to hold off the ISIS advance on Kobani, the United States has begun dropping air supplies of weapons and aid to the Syrian Kurds, while Turkey, under heavy U.S. pressure, is now allowing Iraqi Kurdish forces to cross over into Syria to join the fight.

Special Rapporteur Richard Falk later in the broadcast.
