US-led coalition air strikes against ISIS extremist group killed 20 of the extremists Wednesday as they attacked an oil field in eastern Syria, a monitor said.

"Coalition air strikes killed 20 IS fighters during their attack on the Tanak oil field" where US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces are based, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Last Sunday, ISIS killed 12 US-backed fighters in a surprise attack from the extremists’ holdout in eastern Syria on the Iraqi border.
