Kurdish fighters seize Syrian border post from Islamists

Kurdish militants seized a Syrian border post on the frontier with Iraq early on Saturday, a monitoring group said, after three days of clashes with an al Qaeda-linked group which had held the crossing for more than a year.


The Yarubiya post and surrounding areas in the northeast were taken from the Islamist State of Iraq and the Levant rebel group, who had seized it from the army, The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. (Reuters)
