IS jihadists retake nearly half of Syria border town: monitor

Jihadists launched a counter-attack on Albu Kamal in eastern Syria Friday and retook more than 40 percent of the town they lost a day earlier, a monitor said.   "IS started counter-attacking on Thursday night and retook more than 40 percent of the town of Albu Kamal," Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP.
