Smoke rises after a strike on the Syrian town of Ain al-Arab, known as Kobane by the Kurds, as seen from the Turkish-Syrian border,  in the southeastern village of Mursitpinar, Sanliurfa province, on October 12, 2014. Kurds are furious that Turkey has not intervened to defend the mainly Kurdish Syrian border town of of Ain al-Arab from Islamic State (IS) group jihadists.  Moreover, Turkey has actively prevented Kurds from crossing into Syria to join the fight against the IS because it fears it would lead to the creation of an effective Kurdish fighting force at its border.
