US-led airstrikes hit Daesh pockets in Deir Ezzor
 (Zaman Al Wasl)- US-led coalition airstrikes carrying napalm gas have hit last Daesh pockets in eastern Deir Ezzor province, local activists said Friday.

The attack on al-Sha'fah, one of four towns under Daesh control, followed clashes between Daesh militants and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces near the Iraqi border. 

The International coalition’s raids also targeted regime bastions at the western bank of Euphrates river.

The US-backed forces have urged Daesh jihadists to lay down their arms and to leave the town of al-Hajeen.

Talks are still underway between the SDF and Daesh to evacuate the main ISIS stronghold in Deir Ezzor., according to activist Taj al-Allow. 

Daesh militants are supposed to head the Syrian Desert, also known as badiya, in central Syria.

The Syrian regime now controls nearly two-thirds of Syria and is determined to reassert its authority over Kurdish-held territory, which forms the lion's share of the rest.

But Kurdish leaders and their supporters are desperate to salvage what they can of their painstakingly built institutions.

Meanwhile, Bashar al-Assad's forces have been massing for days around northern Idlib province near the Turkish border and look poised to launch what could be a last major battle in the war that has torn Syria since 2011.
