A convoy of Islamic State fighters and their families being evacuated into jihadist territory in east Syria remained in government-held areas of Syria on Friday, U.S.-led forces said. "It has not managed to link up with any other ISIS elements in eastern Syria," said Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State. There are about 300 fighters and about 300 civilians in the convoy, which the Syrian army and Lebanon's Hezbollah group granted safe passage after the jihadists surrendered their enclave on Syria's border with Lebanon.
