Syrian Democratic forces or SDF composed of Arab-Kurd alliance capture ISIS stronghold of Manbij Two months after beginning operation against Islamic State terrorists in key city.

SDF are combing the city in search of the last remaining terrorists. SDF launched its offensive to retake Manbij on May 31.

The town had served as a key transit point along ISIS’s supply route from the Turkish border to Raqqa(Raqqah), the de facto capital of its self-styled  ‘Islamic caliphate.”

The SDF first encircled the town in early June and surged into it later that month.

But its assault was slowed by a fierce terrorist fightback using suicide attackers and car bombs.
