A Kurdish-led alliance backed by US-led strikes seized a stronghold of the Islamic State group in northeastern Syria on Friday, a monitor said. The Syrian Democratic Forces were now in full control of Al-Shadadi in Hasakeh province, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said. The Observatory said IS forces had withdrawn south of the town, and SDF fighters were engaged in "mopping up" operations outside Al-Shadadi.
