BEIRUT/DIYARBAKIR, TURKEY:  ISIS fighters attacked the town of Tel Abyad controlled by the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia at the Turkish border as well as the nearby town of Suluk today, YPG spokesman Redur Xelil and Turkish security sources told Reuters.

The YPG and Syrian Kurdish internal security forces were able to "crush this attack and encircle the attackers," Xelil said. "The attackers were eliminated," he added. He gave no casualty toll.

The YPG captured Tel Abyad from ISIS last year in an offensive backed by US-led air strikes.

The Turkish security sources said the attack was launched in the early hours of today on two fronts and that the sound of gunfire and explosions, audible from the town of Akcakale on the Turkish side, had continued for several hours.

More accusations of Turkey supporting ISIS at link above. ISIS took advantage of the ceasefire to do this.

Very convenient for ISIS and Turkey that the cease fire does not include terrorist groups. Meanwhile, the Saudis continue their war game Northern Fart, or Flatulent Thunder or whatever it's called.
