The town remains under the control of Kurdish forces, but at least 10 surrounding villages have been seized by IS, along with the captives. The IS offensive has killed at least 35 jihadists and 25 members of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) and of an Assyrian defence force, according to the Observatory.
