ISIS Pushes Back rival Syria İnsurgents Near Turkey

ddISIS fighters advanced against rival insurgents in northern Syria on Sunday, capturing areas close to a border crossing with Turkey, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The fighters captured the town of Soran Azaz and two nearby villages after clashes with other rebels, the Observatory said.

This meant the group could now move along a road leading north to the Bab al-Salam border crossing between the Syrian province of Aleppo and the Turkish province of Kilis.

The next stop would be Syria’s Azaz city, 10 km (6 miles) further north, Islamic State a gateway to the border crossing close by, the Observatory added.
