Some 400 Syrian refugees who early crossed the Turkish borders have returned to their houses in Tal Abyad after the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was expelled from the city last Tuesday.
The fight for the bordering town has forced nearly 23,000 people to flee to neighboring Turkey.
Kurdish People’s Protection Units, or simply (YPG), backed be smaller rebel groups and US-led coalition warplanes launched early this week a wide-scale offensive against ISIS in Tal Abyad. The attacking forces seek to reach Kurds stronghold of Kobani to the east.
In their bid to drive out ISIS, YPG was accused of committing massacres of “ethnic cleansing” against Arab-populated villages along the way.
