Islamic State scores up gains and losses in Syrian fighting

“Islamic State fighters stormed the Syrian town of Tel Abyad on the Turkish border on Tuesday and captured a neighborhood from the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, but suffered setbacks in the northeastern city of Hasaka, a monitor and the army said. Islamic State has launched simultaneous attacks against Syrian government and Kurdish militia this past week in the multi-sided Syrian civil war after losing ground to Kurdish-led forces near the capital of its ‘caliphate’. Backed by U.S.-led air strikes, the YPG militia has advanced deep into the militants’ stronghold province, Raqqa, capturing key positions from the jihadists, including Tel Abyad.”
