A source in the Kurdish People’s Protection Units said ISIS terrorists are gathering their forces in the Northern settlements of Syria’s Raqqah province.

ISIS (Daesh/ISIL) militants are gathering their forces in northern settlements of Syria’s Raqqah province in a bid to attack the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militias, a source in the YPG told Sputnik on Monday.

“ISIS reinforcements have arrived on the frontline in northern Raqqah. They are again preparing to attack YPG positions in the region,” the source said.

According to the source, the terrorists managed to capture the village of Az-Zaybakiya after fierce fighting with Kurdish militia. After the village was captured, ISIS started to execute all those who supported the YPG.

On Friday, ISIS launched a series of coordinated attacks on the mainly Kurdish town of Tell Abyad, situated in the vicinity of the city of Raqqa. The YPG claimed the assault was launched simultaneously from Turkey and the ISIS stronghold of Raqqah. On Sunday, the YPG said it liberated Tell Abyad from the ISIS terrorist group, which is outlawed in many countries including Russia and the United States; FNA reported.
