Last Islamic State town in Syria falls

Pro-government media say Syrian troops and allied fighters have completely encircled the last Islamic State-held town.

The two groups had been making significant gains against IS in their respective countries in recent weeks.

The Los Angeles Department for Children and Family Services have dropped Gibson's child abuse allegations. A while back, Norma claimed the singer/actor once hit Shayla so hard she couldn't even sit.


The capture of the town ends Islamic State's era of territorial rule over the so-called caliphate that it proclaimed in 2014 across Iraq and Syria and in which millions suffered under its hardline, repressive strictures.

"The last stronghold of ISIS, Albukamal, is free of the ISIS organization", said the Syrian commander of the operations on Wednesday night.

Now, he is pursuing the case as the incident is recent enough for the police to launch an investigation. TMZ has said that the 49-year-old actor walked into an LAPD station and filed a sexual assault report.


Later Syrian state TV said Albu Kamal had been "liberated". Along the river on the Syrian side, Syrian government forces took the city of Deir el-Zour last week and the border town of Boukamal facing Qaim today. Using racks of radio and satellite equipment, the coalition forces and Iraqi officers at the base pass information between forces on the ground and al-Asad air base, the coalition's main base in Anbar province some 80 miles to the east.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have also been carrying out offensives in the area.
