Syrian Kurds Advance Toward Islamic State-Held Town

Description

The Syrian Kurdish YPG militia said it began an advance toward an Islamic State-held town at the Turkish border on Saturday, thrusting deeper into the jihadists' stronghold of Raqqa province with the backing of U.S.-led air strikes. Redur Xelil, the YPG spokesman, told Reuters the YPG and smaller Syrian Arab rebel groups fighting alongside it had begun the move toward Tel Abyad after encircling the Islamic State-held town of Suluk 20 km (12 miles) to the southeast.
