KUWAIT CITY, October 6. /TASS/. A female Kurdish suicide bomber blew herself up in the northern Syrian town of Kobane on Sunday, killing several militants from the Islamic State (IS), local media have reported.
The exact number of those targeted in the attack is being verified.
Kurdish fighters have been battling the IS (also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant - ISIL) militants, who seized a part of the strategic Mishtenur hill to the southeast of Kobane.
The terrorists, who have promised to defeat Kurdish militiamen by the holiday of Eid al-Adha, or Feast of Sacrifice, observed on October 4, have been surrounding the key Syrian town on the border with Turkey from three sides.
Kobane, also known as Ain al-Arab in Arabic, is one of the major centers of the Kurdish autonomous administration in northern Syria, where around 100,000 citizens are currently staying.
