The Syrian Kurdish YPG militia said on Monday it had encircled the ISIL-controlled town of Tel Abyad, the nearest border town to the militant's de facto capital of Raqqa city.

YPG spokesman Redur Xelil told Reuters the militia had surrounded the town along the Turkish border, pushing ahead with an offensive with the help of U.S.-led airstrikes to seize strategic territory held by the jihadists, including their main Tal Abyad-Raqqa supply route.
