Last Islamic State town in Syria falls to army - commander

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria’s army and allies including Lebanon’s Hezbollah have captured the last major Islamic State-held town in Syria, a commander in the military alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Wednesday.

The commander added that Iraqi Popular Mobilisation Forces also took part in the capture of Albu Kamal, located in Syria near the Iraqi border on the Euphrates river.
