more sophisticated and more powerful fire power and is continually being resupplied from further positions behind. from the territory that isis has taken over in the last few weeks. fighting continues. air strikes continue. it is looking increasingly desperate for the kurdish fighters that are still in the city, christine. >> phil black for us on the border. thank you. isis militants are celebrating the downing of an iraqi military helicopter. photos posted. both pilots on board were killed. the head of the kurdish regional government in iraq is calling on the u.s.-led coalition to step up air strikes. he pleaded with the international community to help the hundreds of thousands of kurdish refugees fleeing the isis advance. the mother of the american hostage abdul kassig sending out

of the street fighting, then they can leave the air strikes to the u.s. and coalition in order to deal with the isis positions and reinforcements that are moving through the more open territory that they have conquered in recent weeks. they believe that combination will have them hold off isis for a longer period of time. they believe that worked well in the last 24 hours and reclaiming parts of the city that had fallen to isis. there is no doubt the situation for them is dire. the u.s. assessment is clear. kobani will fall and there are clear reasons for that. limited resources. running out of space to fall back to and taking heavy casualties. it is, it seems, only a question of time until the city does fall to isis. fighters remain determined despite the fact the final isis occupation of kobani an appears to be a fact in waiting. >> phil black, you are watching this happen along the border.
