Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria group withdrew from some parts of the embattled Syrian town of Kobane overnight after air strikes by a U.S.-led coalition, Agence France-Presse reported a monitor as saying on Wednesday.

Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said “fighters from the Islamic State withdrew overnight from several areas in the east of Ain al-Arab (Kobane) and the southwestern edges”, Al Arabiya reported.

After the pullback, the group’s fighters were present in eastern parts of the strategic town and its southern edges, but were no longer inside on the western front, Abdel Rahman said.

He said the move came after “their rear positions were hit in strikes, causing casualties and damaging at least four of their vehicles.”

ISIS fighters entered Kobane, also known as Ain al-Arab, on Monday night, after nearly three weeks of fighting around the town on the Syria-Turkey border.
