Daesh (ISIS) has been ousted from northwestern Syria's Idlib province after a final group of the militants surrendered to hard-line rebels Tuesday, both a spokesman and an activist group said.Daesh once held swaths of northern and central Syria including parts of Hama, Homs and Aleppo provinces and much of Raqqa, including its provincial capital.After a string of major defeats last year, hundreds of Daesh fighters fled to a pocket of territory at the intersection of Hama, Idlib and Aleppo provinces. Syrian government troops pushed them out of Hama and into Idlib province last week, Observatory head Rami Abdel-Rahman said.
