Kurdish YPG fighters in northeastern Syria have driven Daesh (ISIS) militants out of Kobani only two days after the group had regained ground in the region, AFP reported Saturday. 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Kurdish forces took back full control of the border town Saturday after closing in on Daesh and surrounding the militants. South of the town, there were still some clashes between the YPG and Daesh, Observatory director Rami Abel Rahman said. 

In one day alone, Daesh had slaughtered more than 146 civilians in and around Kobani.
