The Syrian army said via state media Sunday that it had captured four villages from the US -backed Syrian Democratic Forces near Syria's border with Iraq on the eastern shore of the Euphrates River, where Kurdish-led forces are in control.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was not clear if the airstrikes in the Hassakeh province were carried out by the USA -led coalition or the Iraqi air force.

The latest fighting displaced around 5,000 civilians from Yarmouk into neighbouring area of Yalda, the United Nations said.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces kicked off on Tuesday the final stage in its battle to expel the ISIS terrorist group from eastern Syria. Syria's government captured at least two villages from USA -backed Syrian Democratic Forces east of the Euphrates River near the border with Iraq.

Operations against ISIS in the Middle Eastern River Valley began earlier this year after Turkey launched an offensive against Kurdish forces in Afrin, Syria. We will defend United States, Coalition, and partner forces if attacked.

The U.S. State Department said the days of IS controlling territory in Syria "are coming to an end", and that the renewed operations are meant to "liberate the final ISIS strongholds in Syria".

"ISIS retains a significant presence near the Iraqi borders from which it seeks to retain safe haven to plan attacks around the world and expand its territory in Syria and Iraq", said Leilwa Abdullah, spokesperson of the al-Jazeera Storm campaign and Ahmad Abu Khawlah, commander of the Dayr Az Zawr Military Council.

President Trump authorized airstrikes on Syrian targets to retaliate, and the U.S., Britain and France carried out airstrikes on areas allegedly linked to Syria's chemical weapons program.

The jihadists have lost much of the territory they once controlled in Syria and Iraq since declaring a cross-border caliphate there in 2014. "It is an important bargaining chip at the negotiating table with the many different players of the country's civil war".

Later on Tuesday, state-run Al-Ikhbariya TV said rebels have agreed to allow government forces to return to the countryside north of Homs, the country's third largest city, and re-establish state institutions.
