If the YPG can consolidate and hold onto this gain, this will deal a heavy blow to DAESH, which needs a connection between Raqqa and Turkey.

The advance is a blow to IS, which had been battling to hold onto the border town.

Analysts say it served as a primary conduit for incoming weapons and fighters, as well as for outgoing black market oil.

"It has been an IS stronghold for a while now, and it has been described as the gateway to Raqqa," said Charlie Winter, a researcher on jihadism at the London-based Quilliam Foundation.

"Certainly, it's of strategic importance because it's a border town through which equipment, recruits, et cetera, can pass."

Tal Abyad is 70 kilometres east of the Kurdish-majority town of Kobane, where Kurdish forces battled for months before expelling invading IS forces in January.

Mutlu Civiroglu, a Kurdish affairs analyst, said Tal Abyad was a financal and logistical hub for IS.

"Once you cut this hub it is going to be very hard for IS to smuggle in fighters, to sell oil and deal in the other goods they deal in," he said.

The Provincial Governor of Şanlıurfa, Turkey, İzzettin Küçük, ordered the summary arrest of three journalists after they inquired about the alleged presence of DAESH bandits on Turkish territory in Akçakale, close to the Syrian border.

What a disgusting obnoxious abominable group of savages. What a perverted, sick ideology.
Meanwhile in the UK 3 mothers take their children to join the savages driven by the same sick ideology, yet its the ....police fault !!
"Relatives of three sisters and nine children feared to have travelled to Syria have complained that they are receiving no help from the police, leaving them to investigate the disappearances “off their own backs”.

May the supporters of Isis learn before they die (and may that be soon, and at least as painfully as they inflict on others) that there is no Allah nor Paradise...

The fact that some of the bloodthirsty morons legged it for their lives to Turkey rather than (as they are brainwashed into seeing it) dying as a martyr and going to the top layer of heaven suggests that they may be wising up!

From their first breath when born the mental rape begins, so brainwashed they are that for them Allah, a virus, is worth dying for and killing as many non subscribers to their perverted ideology in the process.
