The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has reportedly re-entered the Syrian town of Kobani, just months after being pushed out from the city after a long battle with Kurdish troops.

Several people have been killed in fierce clashes in the town, reported the BBC.

The strategic town located on the Syrian-Turkish border would give the ISIS a complete control over a stretch of more than 100 kilometers between Raqqa, Syria and Turkey.

The apparent two-pronged ISIS assault came as the group suffered two successive losses at the hands of the Kurdish Popular Protection Units (YPG) forces in Ain Issa, just 50 kilometres from the terror outfit’s stronghold of Raqqa, and Tal Abyad in Syria.
