Hundreds of Kurds fleeing villages held by the Islamic State (ISIS) terror organization in northern Syria amid a wave of mass abductions have been shot at, with several killed or wounded, opposition activists and a Kurdish official said Saturday.

Efforts by the US-led coalition to hit ISIS in its pocket by destroying cash warehouses appears to be taking some effect, and though this may weaken ISIS, experts believe this is not exactly a death-blow to the terror organization.
