U.S. Allies in Syria Cut ISIS Supply Line

Wednesday, June 17, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- A quick and successful offensive by Kurdish fighters and allied rebels in a northern Syrian town has boosted a U.S.-backed effort to choke off Islamic State's supply routes and offered a template for regaining territory from the extremist group, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Emboldened by the recapture of Tal Abyad, the Syrian Kurdish alliance said Tuesday that its next target is Raqqa, Islamic State’s main stronghold in Syria about 50 miles south of Tal Abyad. The fighters said they had already begun advancing southward toward Raqqa on Monday, reaching the town of Ain Issa, only about 30 miles away.

“We will move to liberate Raqqa in the near future,” said Shervan Darweesh, a spokesman for a coalition of rebel factions led by the Syrian Kurdish militia known as YPG. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.wsj.com/articles/kurdish-fighters-allied-rebels-rout-islamic-state-from-syrian-border-town-of-tal-abyad-1434465828" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
