ISIS militants have expeled the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) from its last stronghold in Deir Ezor in eastern Syria, according to a group monitoring the Syrian war.

The take of Hajin city followed counter-attacks by the terrorist group that started on Friday and lasted till early Sunday, said the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

ISIS exploited bad weather in the region to advance against the SDF, the observatory's chief Ramy Abdel-Rahman was quoted by Sky News Arabia as saying.

Earlier, 68 SDF fighters were killed and around 100 others were wounded in Hajin.
