TURKEY USES WATER CANNON & TEAR GAS On Syrian Kurds Trying to Flee ISIS (Video)
Turkish forces used water cannon and tear gas to disperse thousands of Syrian Kurds trying to flee ISIS fighters.
Turkey shut down their border to the refugees for several hours to stop the flood of Kurds fleeing the Kobane region.
70,000 Syrian Kurds have flooded into Turkey in the last 24 hours.

The ISIS fighters took women as hostages.
Sitting in a field after just crossing the border, Abdullah Shiran, a 24-year-old engineer, recounted scenes of horror in his village of Shiran, about 10 km (six miles) from Kobani.
“IS came and attacked and we left with the women but the rest of the men stayed behind … They killed many people in the villages, cutting their throats. We were terrified that they would cut our throats too,” he said.
