AMMAN - The Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, aided by US-led air strikes, have seized most of the town of Tel Abyad, pushing Islamic State fighters who had controlled the town back towards their de facto capital in Raqqa, a monitoring group said on Monday.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks violence across the country, said a handful of Islamic State militants and their Arab tribal allies remained in a few pockets inside the strategic town on the Turkish border.
