Peshmerga head for Syria's Kobane to fight IS

Kurdish peshmerga fighters drive in convoy through Arbil after leaving a base in northern Iraq on October 28, 2014 headed for the Syrian town of KobaneHeavily armed Kurdish peshmerga fighters set off from their base in northern Iraq Tuesday to support militia forces defending the Syrian border town of Kobane from the Islamic State group. More than three dozen vehicles carrying 80 fighters, machineguns and artillery were to travel overland to Kobane, crossing the border into Turkey on Tuesday, a Kurdish officer said. Another 72 peshmerga fighters were to fly to Turkey early on Wednesday, the officer said. Kobane’s Kurdish defenders have been waiting for days for the arrival of the peshmerga fighters, after Turkey last week said it would allow them to traverse its territory to enter the town.
