ʿAyn al‑ʿArab: YPG captures strategically important village

KURDWATCH, March 17, 2015—On March 6, 2015, fighters for the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) People’s Defense Units (YPG) expelled fighters for the Islamic State (IS) from the strategically important village of ash‑Shuyukh, thirty kilometers west of ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî). The PYD thus controls all of the territory between ʿAyn al‑ʿArab and the Euphrates. IS‑fighters destroyed a bridge across the Euphrates to hinder the advance of the YPG.
