Tall Tamr: Renewed fighting between IS and YPG

KURDWATCH, April 14, 2015—On April 8, 2015, fighters for the Islamic State (IS) once again began an offensive to the south and west of Tall Tamr. They set fire to oil tankers so that the resulting billows of smoke would complicate a potential intervention by the US‑Air Force. Fighters for the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) People’s Defense Units (YPG) were able to stop the attack. The IS is still only two kilometers from Tall Tamr; however, the Khabur considerably complicates an advance on the city.
