This is coolbert:

Even while the siege of the Syrian town of Kobane continues without resolution, the combat forces of ISIL still on the move.

"Officials: ISIS attacks Kurd forces in Iraq [15 simultaneous attacks in Northern Iraq]"

"ISIS militants launched about 15 near-simultaneous attacks on Kurdish forces in northern Iraq on Monday in what Kurdish government officials and the Kurdish news agency Rudaw said was a fierce and renewed push for Kurdish-held territory."

"The deadliest of the attacks targeted Mosul Dam, a hugely important location."

"First, an ISIS-commandeered military truck loaded with explosives targeted a Peshmerga checkpoint along the security belt circling the dam, killing six Peshmerga security forces and injuring seven others critically, according to Peshmerga forces"

The determination of ISIL quite strong. And too the ability to attack more or less simultaneously in so many locations indicative of staff planning and an understanding of the operational art.
