  1. Lots of them already are dead for in Syria the Kurds are advancing strongly and rapidly capturing the town called Ain Issa from ISIS and that is 50 kilometres (30 miles) from ISIS’s capitol city of Raqqa. It won’t be too long before the Kurds start their campaign to start killing ISIS inside Raqqa.

  2. The Kurds last week also captured the town of Tal Abyad on the Syrian Turkish border and that cut ISIS’s supply line and also cut their ability to get more new recruits through from Turkey and those already in Syria are trapped and will be killed.
