BEIRUT - Islamic State seized a hilly area southeast of the Syrian city of Aleppo, the militant group and monitors said on Friday, and made further advances near the border with Turkey in fighting that the United Nations said forced inhabitants to flee.

The Islamist insurgents said in a statement that they had gained control over Dureihem and surrounding hills about 65 km 40 miles) southeast of Aleppo, an area that overlooks the government-held town of Khanaser.

Syrian state media reported late on Thursday that the army had engaged in operations against Islamic State near Khanaser, inflicting "large losses" on the insurgents.
