Syrian Kurdish fighters chase IS from key base north of Raqa


BEIRUT: Syrian Kurdish fighters have chased Islamic State militants from a key base north of the jihadists’ stronghold city of Raqa, according to a monitoring group. The Kurdish People’s Protection Units — with US-led air support — took complete control of the Liwa (Brigade) 93 base on Monday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The base was important due to its position overlooking strategic roads linking Raqa to other IS outposts in the provinces of Aleppo to the west and Hasakah to the east.
