Kurdish fighters ousted the Islamic State group from the Syrian border town of Kobane on Saturday, two days after the jihadists had seized several neighbourhoods, a monitoring group said.
"The Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) took back control of IS positions in Kobane," the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Kurdish activist Rudi Mohammad Amin told AFP that "all of Kobane is again under the control of the YPG," adding that "a number of IS fighters were killed and wounded."
