In Syria, fourteen fighters from the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have been killed and several injured in a battle with Islamic State militants.

Syrian Democratic Forces spokesman Kino Gibrail said Daesh terrorists continue to launch counter attacks, taking advantage of the bad weather conditions.

The SDF now controls a swathe of territory in the north and east of Syria while largely avoiding direct confrontation with Damascus in the multi-sided war.
