MURSITPINAR - Turkish tanks took up position on a hill overlooking the besieged Syrian border town of Kobani on Monday after several shells hit Turkish territory as Islamic State militants fired on the town, a Reuters correspondent said.

At least 15 tanks were positioned, some with their guns pointed towards Syrian territory, near a Turkish military base just northwest of Kobani. Plumes of smokes rose up as shells hit both the eastern and western sides of Kobani.

At least two shells also hit Turkish territory on Monday.
