Syrian Kurdish fighters have halted an advance by ISIS fighters to the east of a predominantly Kurdish town near the border with Turkey, a spokesman for the main armed Kurdish group said.More than 100,000 Syrian Kurds, driven by fear of ISIS, have fled its advance, many crossing the border into Turkey.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks violence in the Syrian war, said ISIS fighters had made no significant advance in the last 24 hours. The United Nations said on Sunday the number of Syrian Kurds who had fled into neighbouring Turkey alone might have topped 100,000 and was likely to go much higher.
