US-backed Syria forces say advanced into final IS group enclave

U.S.-backed fighters besieging Islamic State s final shred of territory in eastern Syria said they had pushed further into the enclave following clashes and air strikes by the U.S.-led coalition.

"Our fighters advanced deep into areas controlled by the terrorist organisation and established a number of new points, following clashes in which terrorists sustained a number of deaths and injuries," a statement from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) press office said.
 
It said 15 members of Islamic State had been killed after they tried to attack SDF troops.
