Kurdish militia, backed by Syrian rebel forces, seized full control of a key border town from Daesh jihadist group early on Tuesday, a monitoring group said.
"Since dawn this morning, not a single bullet has been fired in Tal Abyad," said Syrian Observatory for Human Rights director Rami Abdel Rahman.
"The Kurdish fighters now have full control of Tal Abyad," which was used by Daesh as a gateway from Turkey to its de facto capital Raqa to the south, he said.
