SYRIA: ‘ Islamic State Detonates Bombs in Two Villages ‘

#AceNewsReport – SYRIA:July.26: Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants detonated bombs in two villages near Tel Abyad, a Syrian town near the Turkish border controlled by the Kurdish YPG militia, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Saturday.

The Kurdish militia took Tel Abyad from the jihadists in June. The town was an important strategic point for IS militants as the nearest to the Turkish border after its de facto capital Raqqa.

In late June, the jihadists tried to regain the initiative by mounting several assaults on the Kurdish forces in the region.
