Kurdish forces killed at least 16 ISIS group fighters in an attack on Saturday in Syrian Kurdistan, Rojava, near the border with Turkey, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The assault targeted ISIS positions south of the Kurdish town of Serêkaniyê also known as Ras al-Ain in Arabic, in Hasakeh province in Syrian Kurdistan, the Britain-based monitoring group added.

Serêkaniyê was the scene of fierce fighting last year before Kurdish forces ousted the terrorists from the border town.

The Observatory, which relies on activists and medics on the ground for its information, also reported clashes at the terrorist-besieged border town of Kobani, some 100 kilometres away.

IS fighters, who already control swathes of Syria and neighbouring Iraq, launched an assault on the town on September 16.

But they have been held off by Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militiamen, Kurdish Peshmerga reinforcements from Iraqi Kurdistan Region and US-led coalition air strikes.
