At least 24 ISIL Takfiri terrorists have been killed by Kurdish forces in the northern Syrian border town of Kobani, a UK-based monitoring group says.
The so-called The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the ISIL militants were killed during clashes with People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Kobani’s eastern sectors on Tuesday.
The group added that seven YPG fighters were also killed during the firefights as well as two civilians who were killed during ISIL raids.
On Monday, the group said Kurdish fighters were in control of 80 percent of Kobani after recapturing the town’s security and government districts.
Kobani and its surroundings have been under attack since mid-September, with ISIL capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages and killing hundreds of people. More than 200,000 people have reportedly fled across the border into Turkey.
The terrorists control some parts of Syria and Iraq. They are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control.
