According to the source, Ankara has also agreed to deployment of a training camp in the country for moderate Syrian militants fighting against the IS. It makes approximately 4,000 men.
Syrian Kurds have been defending Kobani, located on the border with Turkey for more than three weeks. This city is also considered a capital of the Kurdish Autonomy. Kobani has strategic importance for the militants, as in the case of its occupation, they will control a great part of the Syrian-Turkish border. Nearly 200,000 civilians have fled to neighboring Turkey during the siege.
