Kurdish fighters said they fully secured the Syrian border town of Kobani Saturday and killed more than 60 ISIS militants, two days after the hardline group attacked it with suicide bombers.Redur Xelil, spokesman for the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia said around eight members of ISIS had also escaped north toward the Turkish border after the Kurds pushed back. In Syria's northeast, Kurdish forces and the army fought separate battles with ISIS around Hassakeh city overnight as the extremists tried to capture more areas of the major urban center near the Iraqi border, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said on Saturday.While ISIS had managed to advance slightly in Hassakeh on Friday, seizing one army position, heavy Syrian air force strikes hindered the attack, according to the Observatory.
