ISIS Ambushes US-Backed Kurds in Eastern Syria

US-backed forces from the Kurdish YPG and its allies continue to try to advance against a handful of ISIS-held towns in Eastern Syria, but are finding the offensive difficult. Once again, ISIS has ambushed a substantial group of Kurdish fighters trying to get into the area.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights called it a “counterattack,” and said that violent clashes are still ongoing in the area. Casualties are not finalized, but at least 10 fighters were reported slain and 35 captured so far in the ambush.

The Kurdish YPG’s media officials denied that this was the case, saying that the information was “not true” and that none of their fighters had been captured. It seems unlikely that confirmation will be possible until the fighting ends.
