The Kurdish forces have killed 45 elements of ISIS terrorists in Raqqa province on Saturday.

At least 45 ISIS terrorists were killed in tough battle with the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the town of Tal Abyadh in Raqqa province today.

In a relevant development earlier today, battlefield sources announced that the Kurdish forces had engaged in heavy fighting with the ISIS terrorists in Northern Raqqa.

The Kurdish forces stormed the ISIS positions near Tal Abyadh town and inflicted major losses on the terrorists.

Also on Friday, the YPG and SDF stormed the ISIS gathering centers near the villages of Marwaha in the Southeastern part of the town of Sarin, killed or wounded several terrorists and destroyed their military equipment and vehicles.

"On Wednesday, the Kurdish fighters, after almost six day of intense battle against al-Nusra Front, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Harakat Nouriddeen al-Zinki and Al-Shamiyah Front, imposed full control over the Bani Zeid Youth Housing Complex in Aleppo city."

The SDF that is comprised of mainly Kurdish fighters as well as a few hundred Syrian Arab dissident forces have received trainings from the US and have been provided with scanty US-coalition air support in their battles in Raqqa province in Northeastern Syria; but in Northern and Northwestern battlefronts, they have been operating alongside the YPG and received the Russian air backup in their Aleppo wars that started with the conquest of Tishrin Dam on the Euphrates early in February.

Assisted by the Syrian army - that has along with popular forces and Hezbollah conquered almost all militant-held regions in Eastern, Southern, Western and Northwestern Aleppo province - and Russian air support, the Kurdish forces fighting against the terrorists in North-Northeast Aleppo province have been making striking advances against the al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham and ISIS terrorists in February.

Earlier this month, the YPG and SDF fighters prevailed over the terrorists in the highly strategic city of Tal Rifat in Northern Aleppo and captured the city.

The YPG, who enjoyed the Russian air backup, prevailed the terrorists' positions from the Western direction and shook hand with the Kurdish units of the SDF who entered the town from the North, FNA reported.
