Desperate to flee the flashpoint Syrian border town, known in Kurdish as Kobani, the heavily pregnant mother, her husband and six other children made it across the frontier just in time for the boy's arrival.There, joy abounds over the airstrikes by a coalition of Western and Arab allies that have killed more than 500 Islamist fighters during a monthlong campaign in Syria.U.S. planes have also dropped bundles of supplies, which include ammunitions and weapons, to help Syrian Kurdish fighters trying to defend Ain al-Arab from the ISIS, an extremist Sunni Muslim group that has seized control of large parts of Syria and Iraq.Near Suruc, both Turkish and Syrian Kurds watch from hilltops, breaking out in cheers, whistles and chanting, "Obama, Obama" at each coalition airstrike.
