Syria civil war: Troops enter last IS urban stronghold

Syrian pro-government forces have entered the eastern border town of Albu Kamal, so-called Islamic State’s (IS) last urban stronghold in the country.

The state-run al-Ikhbariya channel said troops and militiamen had “fully liberated” the town on Wednesday night.

But the official Sana news agency and state TV said they had destroyed IS defences and were engaged in fierce confrontations inside Albu Kamal.

Sana also said troops had met up with Iraqi forces on the nearby border.
