Islamic State fighters closed in yesterday to within only a few kilometres of a key Kurdish town on Syria's border with Turkey, despite continued air strikes by the US-led coalition.

NATO member Turkey's government meanwhile said it would ask parliament to debate from as early as Thursday about joining the coalition against the IS militants operating on the country's doorstep.

The alliance carried out fresh raids against IS positions in Syria overnight, but the militants still managed to advance within five kilometres of the strategic Syrian town of Ain al-Arab, known as Kobane to the Kurds.
