Kurdish militia in northern Syria have expelled Al-Qaeda-linked fighters from the majority Kurdish area of Ras al-Ain on the Turkish border, a monitoring group said on Tuesday.
“The Committees for the Protection of the Kurds (YPG) have taken over the Manajeer area, scene of battles with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Al-Nusra Front and other rebel groups,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The capture of Manajeer left the whole of the area around the strategic border town of Ras al-Ain in Kurdish control, the group said.
The advance came a day after reports that Kurdish fighters had driven jihadists out of 19 towns and villages across northeastern Syria, and a week after they captured the key Iraqi border crossing at Yaarubiyeh.
The jihadists “have now lost their last remaining positions in the countryside of Ras al-Ain,” the Observatory said.
