Topic: Syrian Kurds seize control of main road, encircle Islamic State town: spokesman


The Syrian Kurdish YPG militia said on Monday it had encircled the Islamic State-controlled town of Tel Abyad, the nearest border town to the militant's de facto capital of Raqqa city. "Tel Abyad is almost besieged now after the control of the Raqqa-Tel Abyad road," he said. The Kurdish units were sending reinforcements to the area south of Tel Abyad from both its stronghold in Hasaka province in the northeastern border area and from Kobani, northwest of Tal Abyad.
