Has Kobane become vortex of death for ISIS?

It seems like ISIS has finally slipped up in Kobane. Before Kobane, ISIS had been able to conquer cities without much resistance because the local fighters were afraid of being captured and totured or executed.

This does not bode well for the ISIS militants, since their positions make them easy targets for the US and Arab airstrikes.
