Daesh (ISIS) seized parts of a key town on the Syrian-Iraqi border Friday in a massive operation that further confirmed the militants remain a force on the ground.Daesh used at least 10 suicide bombers in its offensive on Albukamal, which lies in the Euphrates Valley in eastern Syria, and swiftly took several neighborhoods, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.The activist group said at least 22 pro-government fighters were also killed in an Daesh attack in a desert area of the southern province of Swaida Thursday.Daesh also launched an attack near the ancient city of Palmyra last month after some of its fighters were transferred out of their last Damascus bastion of Yarmouk.
