Fierce fighting between Syrian government forces and Daesh (ISIS) has killed 64 combatants in Raqqa province over a 24-hour period, an activist group said Wednesday.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activist group said the fighting had claimed the lives of 38 militants and 26 pro-regime combatants since Tuesday morning. Daesh said in a statement Tuesday that its members had killed dozens of regime combatants in "intense fighting lasting hours". Daesh launched a counterattack last week that pushed the regime forces back, and fighting has since continued.Separately, Human Rights Watch called Wednesday for an independent inquiry to probe the fate of thousands of people who have disappeared in Syria's war and to identify mass graves.
