Since Saturday, the Islamic State has intensified its attack on Kobani (also Kobane) and in a first, the outfit has started attacking from the Turkish border as well.
The assault on the Syrian border reportedly began on Saturday with a suicide bomber driving an armoured vehicle on the border crossing between Kobani and Turkey.
Hundreds of militants were seen entering Kobani, though the Turkish officials have denied any ISIS presence in their territory.
"Claims that the vehicle reached the border gate by crossing through Turkish soil are a lie," a statement from the Turkish government said.
However, several pictures and videos posted by the Kurdish militia have raised doubts on Turkey's claim.
The ISIS fighters "used to attack the town from three sides," CBC quoted Nawaf Khalil, the Kurdish Democratic Union Party spokesman, as saying. "Today, they are attacking from four sides."
The attack from the Turkish border has once again raised the distrust among the Kurds. Since ISIS began its onslaught on Kobani, Turkey was found to have aided the outfit on several occasions.
Social media accounts affiliated to ISIS claimed that the group is now going to make a major push to capture the town. Several photo reports shared by the group showed the ISIS militants using tanks to attack Kobani.
On the other hand, the Kurdish militia has stated that the ISIS fighters have taken positions on the Turkish side of the border, from where they are launching attacks on the Kurds.
ISIS began its Kobani offensives in mid-September, capturing parts of the town as well as dozens of nearby villages. The Kurdish town, however, still continues to resist despite being outnumbered by the ISIS.
