With medical supplies depleted in the war-ravaged north Syrian town of Ain al-Arab, Kurdish activist Blesa Omar rushed three comrades wounded in battle against ISIS fighters straight to the border to dispatch them to a Turkish hospital.Deaths of wounded fighters held up at the border have become another emotive charge in a litany of Kurdish grievances against Ankara, which Kurds accuse of turning its back on their kin fighting across the frontier against ISIS.The anger has brought violence to Turkey itself: Turkey's 15 million-strong Kurdish minority rose up last week in riots in which at least 35 people were killed. Turkey says it has been generous to Kurds, taking in 200,000 refugees from the Ain al-Arab area since ISIS fighters launched their offensive four weeks ago.Kurds who have fled ISIS attacks for shelter in Turkey say they have faced intimidation, including arbitrary detentions last week.Some 70 doctors from Turkey and Europe have descended on Suruc to help treat the wounded.Despite the delays, dozens of fighters have been treated at the overstretched hospital in Suruc near the border and in other cities.
