The town on the Turkish border has become a crucial battleground in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) group, which overran large parts of Iraq in June and also holds significant territory in Syria. “Until now peshmerga forces did not go to Kobane and we are ready to send them,” Mustafa Qader, who heads the ministry responsible for Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region’s main security forces, told journalists.
