IS Syria-Iraq communication lines smashed: coalition

People's Protection Units (YPG) fighters patrol at sunset on the outskirts of Tal Hamis, southeast Qameshli, on February 26, 2015, after they retook parts of the town from the Islamic State (IS) groupForces fighting the Islamic State group have cut critical communication and supply lines used by the extremists between Syria and Iraq after a two-week operation, the US-led coalition said. Backed by air strikes, the forces “overcame ISIL (IS) resistance” in northeastern Syria near the strategic town of Tal Hamis — once an IS stronghold — and “denied the terrorist group its freedom of maneuver in the area,” the Combined Joint Task Force said in a statement. During the operation, which ended Saturday, the IS group lost access to primary travel routes it has previously used to move personnel and materials into Iraq.
