JIHADISTs killed in Syria clashes


BEIRUT: At least 70 Islamic State (IS) jihadist fighters have been killed in 48 hours of clashes with Syrian army troops in the northern province of Raqa, a monitoring group said on Friday. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said IS had launched a major push late on Tuesday on Tabqa military airport, the last remaining army stronghold in Raqa, which has been largely overrun by the jihadists. The assailants had carried out car bomb attacks in their assault but failed to make any breakthrough, the Britain-based group said.
