AFP  |  Beirut 

At least 47 US-backed fighters have been killed in counter-attacks by the Islamic State group in eastern Syria over the past two days, a Britain-based monitor said Saturday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights raised the death toll from an earlier figure of 24 after it said IS jihadists launched three fresh assaults Saturday.
