Damascus: 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.
They were defending the last pocket of their “caliphate” in Syria, as EU foreign ministers meet to discuss the crisis.
The US President Donald Trump has called upon the European nations to take back their foreign fighters.
Media reports said the frequencies used by the jihadists for communication had gone dead.
Their area of control is really squeezed and they don’t have as many walkie-talkies to communicate, reports said.
Reports said civilians who escaped the wrath told that IS militants were using women and children “as human shields”.
