ISIS fighters stormed a Syrian town held by Kurdish-led forces near Raqqa city Monday, part of a wider offensive by the militants two days after their de facto capital was hit by some of the heaviest U.S.-led airstrikes in the conflict.The Kurdish YPG militia said it was fighting to expel ISIS fighters who had attacked Ain Issa, captured from them only two weeks ago with aerial support from the U.S.-led military alliance. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Monday a flurry of U.S. airstrikes around Raqqa over the weekend was aimed at disrupting the ability of ISIS fighters to parry advances by Kurdish forces.The Observatory said at least 37 ISIS fighters were killed and scores wounded in airstrikes by the coalition and in clashes with Kurdish militia in the last twenty four hours in northeastern Syria.
