Kurdish fighters are reportedly in control of more than 60 percent of the Syrian border town of Kobani as the ISIL terror group has lost ground in the strategic territory.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Saturday that Kurdish forces made the gains with the help of Kurds from Iraq and the US-led coalition airstrikes.

“IS (ISIL) has even left areas that the Kurds did not enter for fear of mines,” the UK-based group added.

Mustefa Ebdi, a Kurdish activist from the town, also said the Kurdish forces had advanced eastward on the frontline during the past week, adding that the terrorists are “now using tunnels after failing in their tactics of car bombs and explosive belts.”

Kobani and its surroundings have been under attack since mid-September, with the ISIL militants capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages and killing hundreds of people. More than 200,000 people have reportedly fled across the border into Turkey.

Reports also said over 1,000 people have been killed in the battle for the town, most of them terrorists.

The ISIL terrorists control some parts of Iraq and Syria. They are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control. They have terrorized and killed people of all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.
