imageBEIRUT: At least 21 Islamic State members were killed in air strikes in Syria's eastern city of Deir al-Zor, a monitoring group said on Thursday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was not clear which country's air force carried out the strikes on an Islamic State base in al-Husseiniya, a northwestern district of Deir al-Zor.

Fifteen of the dead Islamic State militants were foreigners, and some had already been buried, it said.

It was not immediately possible to verify the report by the Observatory, which monitors Syria's conflict through a network of sources across the country.
