AC­TIVISTS say the US-led coali­tion has launched sev­eral air strikes on po­si­tions of Is­lamic State group mil­i­tants in north­ern and east­ern Syria, most in the town of Kobani, near Turkey.

The UK-based Syr­ian Ob­ser­va­tory for Hu­man Rights and the Lo­cal Co­or­di­na­tion Com­mit­tees say some of the air strikes tar­geted the east­ern town of Mayadeen.

The Ob­ser­va­tory said the bom­bard­ment hit oil re­finer­ies near Mayadeen, spark­ing a huge fire.
