The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has claimed that the militant group captured Al Rai early on Monday morning after intense fighting for the frontier town, report Dawn.
Recapturing of Al Rai, which is strategically located on the border with Turkey, serving as an access point to supply lines, shows the group's capability of launching counterattacks.
Recently, Islamic State has lost wide areas in Iraq and Syria including the historic central town of Palmyra.
