Refugees in Suruc, Turkey, have told how relatives and neighbours were beheaded by Isil militants, while another spoke of how he had seen “hundreds” of decapitated corpses in the besieged town.
The UN Syria envoy has warned that the hundreds still trapped in Kobane will be “massacred” by militants if the town falls, while only a small corridor remains open for people to flee.
More than 200,000 have already escaped across the border to Turkey but up to 700 remain inside the town.
Our allies in Ankara are pretty much siding with ISIL along their southern border as a hedge against Turkey’s Kurdish “problem.”
Revolting actions by ISIL are neatly matched by Turkey’s revolting inaction.
