Syria 🇸🇾 civil war: ISIS major town ‘captured’

1 min read

Syrian army and allied forces have taken Albu Kamal, the last major town held by so-called Islamic State in the country, Syrian state media says.
Iraqi Popular Mobilisation Forces also took part in the operation, close to the border between the two countries. The militants overran vast areas of both Syria and Iraq in the summer of 2014, establishing a “caliphate”.
A commander in the Syrian pro-government military alliance said, quoted by Reuters: “The last stronghold of Daesh (Islamic State), Albu Kamal, is free of the Daesh organisation.”
However, UK-based monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the town was still under siege and there was fierce fighting in the area.
