BEIRUT – Air strikes overnight hit Islamic State-held territory in Syria near the Turkish border, an organisation that tracks violence in the Syrian war said on Wednesday.

Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the warplanes that carried out the raids west of the city of Kobani, also known as Ayn al-Arab, had come from the direction ofTurkey. He added that they were not Syrian.

A US-led alliance launched air strikes on Islamic State in Syria on Tuesday. Islamic State last week launched an offensive against the predominantly Kurdish town of Kobani, forcing more than 130,000 Syrian Kurds to flee.The Observatory gathers its information from a network of activists across Syria.
