Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS. One start today with a nod to my friends at Lamkin County High School who visited CNN Center yesterday. It's great to see all of you. Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS. First up this Thursday, December Fourth, the Syrian town of Kobani.

You've heard us mention it before. It's right by Syria's northern border with Turkey.

It's been targeted for months by the ISIS terrorist groups, which controls about a third of Iraq and Syria.

But ISIS hasn't been able to take total control of Kobani. It's been hit by U.S.-led airstrikes.American and Syrian officials disagree about whether these airstrikes have been effective in stopping ISIS.

But the terrorists have also gotten strong resistance in Kobani by Kurds and other ethnic groups. All this has taken its toll on the border town.

Some areas are just hips of rubble. Previously, we could only show you fighting there, from our journalists who were across the border in Turkey.

Now, with the help of some of those who are fighting ISIS, we are able to show you what it's like inside Kobani.

We've been taken down these streets towards the eastern frontline behind those curtains they have put up to protect them from snipers by Barfi and Media, two of the female YPG fighters escorting us down there.

And this is their-the eastern front where there is much more intense fighting in the past three or four days.

And while we get different figures from whoever you speak to hear about quite how much of the city is controlled, and you see here quite remarkable devastation caused by the explosive used. What's quite clear is that ISIS are far from giving up on this fight.

In fact, trying to take ground every day. They moved towards the official border crossing three or four days ago. That was a substantial advance they tried. They were beaten back, but each night,particularly last night, we had very intense clashes further down the street towards the eastern frontier.

You can hear the-you can see the absolute devastation here. As we get close towards ISIS's positions here to the northeast of the city.

Some of these caused by airstrikes, but some, too, from the daily constant, sometimes every five minutes thump of mortars, some home-made by ISIS.

They have been pounding onto Kobani for months now.

We can see Turkey eventually just behind us. But here they are-through this wreckage, closer and closer to the places where ISIS are trying to push forwards.

Time for the Shoutout. Which of these constellations was named for a mythological hunter? If you think you know it, shout it out. Is it Aries, Orion, Pegasus or Leo? You've got three seconds, go.

One of the easiest constellations to find on winter nights, Orion. It's named for the Greek mythological hunter. That's your answer and that's your shoutout.
