Islamic State group jihadists are trying to cling to their last territory of half a square kilometer in eastern Syria near the Iraqi border on Monday.

Ahead of a victory declaration expected within days and a subsequent US military pullout, US President Donald Trump called on his European allies to take back hundreds of alleged militants captured in Syria.

"Over the past month, more than one foreign sleeper cell was arrested in multiple areas in Syria", spokesman Bali said on Sunday.

"Thousands of civilians are still trapped there as human shields", he said on Saturday.

Trump has sworn to pull U.S. forces from Syria after Islamic State's territorial defeat, raising concerns in Paris and other European capitals that jihadists from their countries could disperse and try to return to their home countries. "They have got to be held while they are talked to and if there is sufficient evidence against any of them, or many of them, they have to be put through due process and imprisoned if that is the right thing to do", he said.

US-backed fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) rest after combing through rubble and ruined houses in the village of Baghouz whree they are fighting to expel Islamic State group jihadists from their last shred of territory in Syria. On Friday he said announcements on the fall of the caliphate would be made "over the next 24 hours", but that deadline came and went.

Islamic State militants on Saturday hung on to their last parcel of land in eastern Syria after several days of bombardment from USA fighter jets and pressure from all sides by advancing forces on the ground.

On Sunday, the US envoy to Syria, Jim Jeffey, was asked to respond to Le Drian's comments and said USA policy goals have been consistent: The enduring defeat of the Islamic State, a United Nations -brokered political solution in Syria, the removal of foreign forces.

The Observatory said that some 200 IS gunmen surrendered Friday, days after about 240 others surrendered and were taken by SDF fighters and members of the US -led coalition.

"The United States is asking Britain, France, Germany and other European allies to take back over 800 ISIS fighters that we captured in Syria and put them on trial", he said, using an alternative acronym for Daesh.

Furat, the SDF commander, said that his fighters were able to liberate 10 of their colleagues held by IS.

"The tempo of battle must not be dictated by political imperatives - it must first of all protect civilians and possible hostages", HRW's director of counterterrorism, Nadim Houry, said. "We do so much, and spend so much - time for others to step and do the job that they are capable of doing", he tweeted.

The SDF also said dozens of IS fighters had surrendered to its advancing forces.

In Syria, "it is the Kurds who hold them (the French jihadists) and we have every confidence in their ability to keep them detained", French junior interior minister Laurent Nunez said.

Dannatt said British Isis fighters in Syria must be subject to due process. Trump said in his late-Saturday tweets. A prolonged presence of foreign fighters in Syria as captives gives rise to the risk they might escape and fuel a potential resurgence of the Islamic State as an underground movement.
