Turkish tanks and armored vehicles took up positions on hills overlooking the besieged Syrian border town of Kobani on Monday as shelling by ISIS insurgents intensified and stray fire hit Turkish soil, a Reuters correspondent said.At least 30 tanks and armored vehicles, some with their guns pointed towards Syrian territory, were positioned near a Turkish military base just northwest of Kobani. At least two shells hit Turkish territory on Monday. The Turkish military said earlier it had fired back on Sunday after two mortar bombs crossed the border. ISIS insurgents launched their assault on Kobani, a predominantly Kurdish town also known as Ayn al-Arab, more than a week ago, besieging it from three sides and sending more than 150,000 Kurds fleeing into Turkey.
