BEIRUT - A Syrian grouping of insurgents said on Saturday they have recaptured two villages from Islamic State fighters in northern Aleppo province near the border with Turkey.

The Jabhat al Shamiya (Levant Front), an alliance of rebel groups operating in the northern Aleppo countryside, said in statements posted on the internet that its fighters "freed" the villages of Delha and Harjaleh, which it had lost in August.

It posted pictures of young men it said were fighters from the Islamic State group whom it has taken captive. It also said it has dismantled hundreds of mines from the two villages.
