Syrian army take back Albu Kamal from Islamic State


Syrian army take back Albu Kamal from Islamic State

The Syrian army and its allies took complete control over Albu Kamal, Islamic State’s last significant town in Syria, a military news service run by Hezbollah said on Sunday.

The army had declared victory over Islamic State in Albu Kamal earlier this month but the jihadists then staged a counter-attack using sleeper cells hidden in the town.

Driving Islamic State from Albu Kamal means only a few villages along the Euphrates and patches of nearby desert, as well as isolated pockets in other parts of the country, remain in Syria of the caliphate it declared in 2014.

Two years after militants killed 130 people in coordinated attacks across Paris, French officials say there remains an unprecedented level of “internal” threat.

With Islamic State losing ground in Iraq and Syria, hundreds of French citizens - and in some cases their children - are expected to attempt to return to France, leaving the government in a quandary over how to deal with them.
