First Syrian refugees are returning to Tal Abyad after Syrian Kurdish fighters fully liberated the strategic border town from the grip of the ISIS Takfiri group.

According to Syrian media reports, hundreds of Syrian people who left Tal Abyad after ISIS raided and occupied the town are now returning home, two days after the Syrian Kurds recaptured Tal Abyad.

The Syrian Kurdish fighters gained full control over the strategic border town of Tal Abyad on June 16 after inflicting heavy casualties on the ISIS Takfiri terrorists.

The people of Raqqa city said on Tuesday that they have heard ISIS militants acknowledging defeat in Tal Abyad, the Arabic-language service of Kurdish Rudaw news website reported.

The Kurdish website noted that sporadic clashes still continue in some villages in the Western parts of Tal Abyad and Eastern Kobani.
