#1 Kurdish forces in aliance with a Raqa revolutionary brigade arrived on Monday at the edge of Raqa province, 40 miles East of Kobane to take the border crossing town of Tal Abiad where ISIS fighters cross over from Turkey.

It has been reported that after the Kurds took Kobane as many as 750 young Kurds volunteered to fight to Kurdistan in one day.
