BEIRUT - Syrian government and allied forces have taken the eastern Syrian town of al-Mayadeen from Islamic State, a Syrian military source said on Saturday.

The source said the jihadists had suffered a "collapse" in their ranks. Al-Mayadeen lies south of Deir al-Zor city, where Syrian and allied forces are trying to oust the militants from a small pocket they still control.
