A US-backed Arab-Kurdish alliance on Friday severed ISIS’s main supply route to Turkey after encircling a key extremist-held town in northern Syria, a monitor said.

“The Syrian Democratic Forces cut off the last road from Manbij to the Turkish border on Friday morning,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

ISIS still controls territory along the Turkish border with secondary roads to the frontier but these are more dangerous and difficult to access, Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said.
