Syria jihadists fight Kurds, Sunni tribe

An image made available by jihadist Twitter account Al-Baraka news on June 11, 2014 allegedly shows Islamic State militants hanging their flag near the Syrian-Iraqi borderThe jihadist Islamic State (IS), which has taken over large swathes of war-torn Syria in just a few months, was Thursday engaged in fighting Kurds and members of a Sunni tribe. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the well-equipped Kurds, who started fighting IS after it emerged in Syria in spring last year, had Wednesday recaptured several hills surrounding the city of Ain al-Arab (Kobane in Kurdish) in the north. IS has been trying to take Ain al-Arab — Syria’s third Kurdish city — and incorporate it into the Islamic “caliphate” it proclaimed last month. Dozens of other fighters were wounded, the Observatory said.
