An assault by the Islamic State (IS) militant group in eastern Syria has killed at least 92 US-backed fighters in three days, a war monitor said Monday.

It was the highest death toll the jihadist group has inflicted against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in a single offensive, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
