A spokesman for USA -backed forces fighting the Islamic State group in Syria says his fighters are in control of an encampment in the village of Baghouz where IS militants have been besieged for months.

A spokesman for USA -backed forces fighting the Islamic State group in Syria says they have captured a group of suspects involved in a January bombing that killed four Americans in a town in northern Syria.

Mustafa Bali, the SDF spokesman, tweeted a series of map images showing the territory SDF said had been claimed, near the Euphrates River. "More than 60,000 people have poured out of this area in the past two months".

"Clashes are continuing as a group of ISIS terrorists who are confined into a tiny area still fight back", Bali said in English, using an alternative acronym for IS.

Its special forces had anticipated a breakout attempt by desperate fighters.

The IS-held village is the last pocket of territory in Syria controlled by the extremist group, which once held a vast area of Syria and Iraq, calling it an Islamic "caliphate".

The enclave resembles an encampment, filled with stationary vehicles and rough shelters with blankets or tarpaulins that could be seen flapping in the wind during a lull in fighting as people walked among them.

Suicide attacks on Friday targeted families of Islamic State fighters attempting to leave the enclave and surrender, killing six people, the SDF said.

The Syrian Democratic Forces say they have taken control of the village, after weeks of offensives and surrenders by ISIS fighters.

"Do you think the displacement of the weak and poor out of Baghouz will weaken the Islamic State?".

The US defense official said up to five ISIS members who were involved in the planning and execution of the attack are being detained by the Syrian Democratic Forces.

SDF commander Zana Amedi said that the encampment was "completely under SDF control".

In the last two weeks, many Islamic State militants appeared to be among those evacuating. Still, he cautioned, "this is not a victory announcement, but a significant progress in the fight".

Sixteen people were killed by a suicide bomber at a restaurant in Manbij in northern Syria, including Navy Chief Petty Officer Shannon M. Kent, 35, of Pine Plains, NY, Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jonathan R. Farmer, 37, of Boynton Beach, FL, Defense Intelligence Agency civilian Scott A. Wirtz, 42, of St. Louis, MO, and interpreter Ghadir Taher, 27, of East Point, GA, a naturalized USA citizen.

A US-backed force in Syria said Tuesday it has arrested jihadists suspected of involvement in the deadliest attack on United States troops since they deployed in the war-torn country in 2014. "Set up the (explosive) devices, deploy the snipers", said the spokesman, named as Abi Hassan al-Mujahir.
