Syrian army liberates last IS stronghold in eastern Syria

US Is Running Out Of ISIS Terrorists To Bomb Iraqi PM raises flag at border crossing taken from IS

However, Iraqi fighter jets have repeatedly launched air raids on Daesh strongholds on both sides of the Syrian border. Sana news agency said Syrian and Iraqi forces had met on the border and the town had been surrounded.

According to Al-Abadi, Iraqi forces are now in control of oil refineries in the north. But a war monitor, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said it was not true that Albu Kamal was taken and there was still fighting in the area. Recent reports have revealed that coalition airstrikes have declined by more than 50 percent.

Hezbollah was "the foundation in the battle of Albu Kamal", said the commander, adding that hundreds of the elite forces of the Iran-backed Shi'ite group took part in the battle. The town was one of the last major settlements held by Islamic State terrorists.

Croft revealed that aircraft has yet to be moved out of Iraq and Syria.

Despite its losses, Islamic State still has a territorial presence in Libya and elsewhere, and many governments expect it to remain a threat even after it loses the caliphate it declared from Mosul, Iraq, in 2014. In the years since, however, local and worldwide forces have reduced ISIS territory in both countries to a fraction of its former self.

Iraqi forces backed by the USA -led coalition drove IS from Qaim and surrounding areas last week, in what coalition officials said marked the end of the conventional war against the extremist group in Iraq. Pro-government forces were also mobilized last month to check a failed Kurdish bid for independence.
