“Syrian Kurds take a town 30 miles from the ISIS capital, but their goal of their own nation complicate the fight. Ethnic Kurds—who on Tuesday scored their second and third significant victories over ISIS in the space of eight days—are by far the most effective force fighting ISIS in both Iraq and Syria.
