At least 50 people were killed on Monday by US -led airstrikes on the last Islamic State (IS) stronghold in eastern Syria, state news agency SANA reported.
Kurdish-led forces pounded the last scrap of land held by the Islamic State group Monday, a scattering of tents and destroyed buildings in a remote eastern Syrian hamlet.
SDF said Sunday that they had resumed their campaign to expel Islamic State from the village of Baghuz after briefly suspending it to evacuate civilians still trapped there.
"Our forces are now clashing with the terrorists", he said.
After weeks of besieging Baghouz, the operation launched Sunday night aims at finally taking the last tiny patch of land held by the militants, a pocket on the banks of the Euphrates River in eastern Syria near the border with Iraq.
A former IS fighter who surrendered to the SDF two months ago told Reuters in an interview on Saturday that the group had sent hundreds of men out of its diminishing territory to establish sleeper cells.
The capture of Baghouz will mark the end of Islamic State's territorial rule over populated areas of Iraq and Syria, and the culmination of a US -backed military campaign waged by the SDF for four years.
Warplanes and drones targeted the village as explosions were heard and fires seen from intense artillery and rocket fire.
