Iraqi troops target Islamic State remnants near Syria border

Iraqi premier vows to respond to attacks from Syria

The footage shows Hezbollah fighters posing with the group's flag as well as Syrian soldiers and allied militia posing with the national Syrian flag.

Syria's army and its 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 says.

As ISIS is destroyed in Iraq, Croft said Iraqi security forces will not cross the border into Syria to pursue them. But a war monitor, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said it was not true that Albu Kamal was taken and there was still fighting in the area.

The battle for Al-Bukamal took on a potentially new dimension amid widely spread, yet unconfirmed reports suggested that the elusive ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had recently fled to the town.

Both sit along what was once an important supply route used by IS when the group controlled large areas in Syria and Iraq.

Coalition air strikes in Syria and Iraq fell sharply last month, a reflection of the collapse of the Daesh terror group, a US Air Force general said Tuesday.

Croft revealed that aircraft has yet to be moved out of Iraq and Syria. In the years since, however, local and global forces have reduced ISIS territory in both countries to a fraction of its former self.

The victory in al-Bukamal comes hours after the army started storming the city, which was the last IS stronghold in that part of the country near the Iraqi border. Al-Abadi made his comments at a news conference following his weekly Cabinet meeting. Both the Syrian and Iraqi militaries, along with their allied militias and respective global sponsors, have largely defeated ISIS, but parts of Syria remain under rebel and Kurdish control.
