Heavy U.S.-led air strikes in northeastern Syria killed at least 170 Islamic State militants in a 48-hour period earlier this week, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported overnight.

The U.S.-led alliance has been coordinating its air campaign in the northeastern province of Hasaka with Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, which is fighting Islamic State on the ground there.
