Syria: Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) take Syrian city of Manbij from ISIS


Syria Democratic Forces, with air support from the US-led coalition, have taken near complete control of Manbij, the group announced. Islamic State fighters had held the northern Syrian city near the Turkish border since 2014.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a coalition of Kurdish and Arab fighters, had fought since June to drive Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) out of Manbij, a key city on the supply route behind the jihadist group stronghold of Raqqa and the Turkish border.

The SDF is still doing the final sweep of the city after the final group of militants left on Friday.

The city is now fully under our control but we are undertaking sweeping operations,” Sharfan Darwish of the SDF-allied Manbij Military Council told Reuters.
