The Islamic State militants have been driven out of Kobane by Kurdish forces ending a four-month battle for the northern Syrian town activists say.
Fighters from the Popular Protection Units were said to have gained access to areas in the east of the town after the jihadists retreated.
The battle for Kobane was seen as a major test for the US-led coalition’s strategy to combat IS with air strikes.
Over 160,000 people have fled the mainly Kurdish town and crossed over the nearby border with Turkey after the terror group launched an attack in September 2014.Follow Us on Social Media
