Rami Abdurrahman of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Omar Abu Laila, a Europe-based opposition activist originally from Syria's eastern province, said Saturday that Islamic State fighters are now once again in full control of the town.

If it hadn't been for Russia's air support, Iran's militias would not have expanded and would not have even survived defeat. "The ultimate political solution to the conflict must be forged through the Geneva process" under United Nations resolutions.

The Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) is establishing a long-term existence of its foreign militias and militants in regions ruled by it inside Syria, up to 50 kilometers from the Israeli border with Golan.
