Heavy clashes between Daesh, US-backed fighters in Syria
Rival groups are reporting intense battles in eastern Syria between Daesh (ISIS) and U.S.-backed fighters.

The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces says the fighting Thursday is over the village of Souseh where a sandstorm has caused bad visibility.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the fighting began Wednesday, when Daesh launched an offensive against the opposition group, killing 10 of them. The fate of 35 other opposition fighters is unknown.

The Observatory said 18 Daesh gunmen have been killed while the Daesh-linked Aamaq news agency reported 18 deaths among SDF fighters.

Souseh is in the last pocket held by Daesh in Syria that the SDF has been trying to capture since last month.
