Kurdish fighters have gained control over about 70 percent of Syria’s strategic town of Kobani across from the Turkish border, a Britain-based monitoring group said.

ISIL Takfiri militants have lost ground at the Kurdish town where they face forces of the People’s Protection Units (YPG), said the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights on Wednesday, press tv reported.

The YGP forces made significant advances in their fight against the terrorists overnight on Tuesday.

The US-led coalition also launched five airstrikes near the town, whose Southern and Central parts are now under the fighters’ control along with most of the West in an area stretching up to the border.

Since late September, the US and some of its Arab allies have been conducting airstrikes against ISIL inside Syria without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.

The ISIL terrorists currently control swaths of territory across Iraq and neighboring Syria where they have been committing heinous crimes.
