    BEIRUT - Groups affiliated to the Islamic State have taken some areas of central Syria after two anti-ISIS coalitions, one led by the US and the other by Russia, announced last week the military defeat of ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

    According to sources on the ground in regions between Hama and Idlib, ISIS groups that had fled the area of Salamiya, east of Hama, reorganized and carried out a surprise attack against government forces and Syrian insurgents south-east of the military airport of Abu Dhuhur, currently a point of contention between loyalists and Syrian rebels.

    Over the past 24 hours, according to the sources, about 10 minor locations between Hama and Idlib were taken by pro-ISIS groups.
