Syrian forces converge on Daesh's last Syria bastion


(MENAFN)Syrian and allied forces were able to capture on Saturday Daesh group fighters in the Syrian border town of Albu Kamal, the terrorists very last urban bastion after a number of loses.

Russian-backed Syrian regime forces were able to take full control of Deir Ezzor, the last city in which Daesh still had a presence after being banished from Hawija and Raqqa last month.

The borders of a "caliphate" that three years ago extended territory over Iraq and Syria shrank on the group's surviving fighters when Iraqi forces took Al Qaim back, on Friday.

The town is in western Iraq and faces Albu Kamal, which is where many of Daesh's lasting fighters are thought to have regrouped.
