Syrian forces made advances against rebels in Hama and Latakia provinces as they pressed a ground operation backed by Russian air support.

Washington said the United States and Russia had made "progress" in discussions designed to avoid accidents between them in Syria's increasingly crowded airspace.

In the northern province of Aleppo, meanwhile, rebels battled to reverse an advance by the Islamic State group that brought the extremists to within a few kilometres of Syria's second city.

In Hama, with Russian air support and that of militias on the ground, regime forces captured several areas.
