Syria army declares 48-hour truce in southern city

The Iraqi army and Sunni tribal fighters have dislodged ISIS from the al-Waleed border crossing into Syria, an Iraqi military statement said on Saturday.

Aircraft from the United State-led coalition and the Iraqi air force took part in the operation, the statement said.

Al-Waleed is close to Tanf, a strategic Syrian highway border crossing with Iraq, where United State forces have assisted rebels trying to recapture territory from fleeing ISIS fighters.
United State forces have been based since last year at Tanf.
