ISIS has infiltrated inside of Turkey with attempt to kidnap Syrian leader

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online): Abu Issa, the leader of a group fighting ISIS in the besieged city of Kobani, with his 20-year-old son Ammar were ambushed by jihadists in the southeastern Turkish town of Urfa late last week.
Father and son had been attending a meeting with Turkish officials were snatched from their car in an apparent kidnapping attempt. The driver of their car allegedly switched off the engine when they were confronted by four heavily armed ISIS militants at a roadblock.
Act now, please help save fellow Christians from genocide!
Abducted and driven at high speed towards the Syrian border, father and son managed to escape when one of the third-party smugglers bailed on the plan after spotting Turkish soldiers.
None of the Islamic State attackers wore masks. Two of them were known to Abu Issa from fighting in Kobani, his aides in the Thuwar Raqqa rebel group told reporters.
ISIS cars blocked the road ahead of them, and four armed men grabbed them from the vehicle. It was 6:30 p.m." on Friday night, spokesman Ahmed Abdul Khader said.
A matching account of the kidnapping was reportedly given to the newspaper by another military commander in the group, Abo Ayham.
Issa's driver - who was also his most trusted advisor - had been in on the plot, driving the rebel leader into a quiet back road where the ISIS agents were waiting, refusing to turn the vehicle around when ordered to do so. He allegedly turned off the car's engine rather than trying to escape.
In related news, Kurdish forces defending a besieged Syrian town against ISIS fighters received supplies and weapons in an airdrop Sunday, U.S. military officials said.
Airdrops into Kobani, on the border of Turkey, were conducted by the U.S. in Syria and followed a series of American and coalition airstrikes supporting the Kurds.
U.S. Central Command said C-130 cargo planes made multiple drops of arms and medical supplies that had been provided by Kurdish authorities in Iraq.
The airdrops were intended to support continued resistance to ISIS as the Islamist extremist group attempts to gain control of Kobani.
