ʿAyn al‑ʿArab: YPG surrounds strategically important village under IS‑control

KURDWATCH, July 6, 2015—On July 3, 2015, fighters for the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) People’s Defense Units (YPG) captured several towns to the north and east of the small village of Sarrin, thirty-five kilometers south of ʿAyn al‑ʿArab (Kobanî). Sarrin is the last village in the vicinity of ʿAyn al‑ʿArab that is under Islamic State (IS) control. The village is strategically important because it is home to one of the few bridges across the reservoir that separates ar‑Raqqah from the territories east of of Aleppo.
