After retaking Al-Qa'im, Iraqi forces have reportedly begun operations to clear the deserts north of the crossing, leaving little room for ISIS to thrive.

Albu Kamal lies on the Syrian side of the border with Iraq, in the oil-rich eastern province of Deir Ezzor.

A source from militias allied to Damascus told AFP that fighters from Lebanon's pro-regime Hezbollah movement had advanced to the southern edges of Albu Kamal on Wednesday.

Albu Kamal is located on the border with Iraq on the bank of the Euphrates.

Syrian troops, fighting alongside various pro-government and Iran-backed militias, have claimed a series of major victories in a rapidly closing pocket that comprises ISIS's final stretch of territory in the Middle East. Recent reports have revealed that coalition airstrikes have declined by more than 50 percent.

The two outlets said earlier that Syrian troops had linked up with Iraqi forces across the border.

According to USA Today, the ISIS previously roamed the cities of Iraq and Syria riding in tanks and presenting themselves as an easy target for US -backed coalition airstrikes.

USA -led airstrikes against ISIS are down 60 to 70 percent the past month compared to the previous eight months as the caliphate crumbles in Iraq and Syria and the number of targets decrease "dramatically", according to the deputy commander for air operations against ISIS. News showed ISIS fighters attempting to flee al-Qaim city.

More than 330,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began in March 2011 with anti-government protests, before spiralling into a complex, multi-front war that drew in global forces and jihadists.
