The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and local Kurdish official Nawaf Khalil said on Saturday that the fighters were streaming into the Kobani area in northern Syria.
Fighters from Islamic State group have been barreling through the Kobani area over the past week, seizing villages and forcing thousands of Syrian Kurds to flee.
Syrian Kurdish fighters had been successfully fighting off the militants for the past two years, but the tide has changed recently, leading them to call for Western aid.
