Syria Declares Victory over ISIS
 

 

Syria’s army declared victory over the Islamic State (ISIL) militant group on Thursday, saying its capture of the jihadists’ last town in the country marked the collapse of their self-declared caliphate.
 

 

The army and its allies say they are still fighting ISIL in desert areas near the eastern town of Albu Kamal, which was the group’s last major urban stronghold in Syria.
 

 

Government troops earlier linked up with Iraqi forces at the border after taking the nearby city of al-Qaim.
