Description

The US has confirmed that military ammunition which were air dropped over the restive Syrian border town of Kobane have fallen in to the wrong hands. The Pentagon said two bundles, out of 28 that were air dropped earlier this week to assist Kurdish fighters battling the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (ISIL) have gone astray. According to statements made on Wednesday, one of the two bundles was taken by ISIL and the other was destroyed. Al-Jazeera’s Randolph Nogel reports.
