Over 150 ISIL terrorists have been killed and over 90 villages have been liberated in the Syrian Forces' anti-terrorism operations in Northeastern Aleppo.

"The SDF fighters have liberated over 90 villages in the Eastern bank of Euphrates since the start of their operation in the region 11 days ago," the source said, adding, "Some 159 terrorists of the ISIL have been killed and the SDF has only lost some 22 fighters in Manbij clashes," the sources said.

Reports said earlier today that the SDF won more battles against the ISIL in Northeastern Aleppo and freed eight more villages from Takfiri terrorists near the town of Manbij.

"The Kurdish-led SDF stormed the ISIL positions near the strategic town of Manbij and forced the ISIL to retreat from more positions near the villages of Khirbet al-Aswad, Mugharat, Jariyat, Khurfan, Ghazawiyah, Ratouniyah, Jubb al-Qadir and Jubb al-Taweel after hours of non-stop battle," the sources said, adding, "Then, the SDF fighters advanced to the villages of Rasm Akhdar and Nahid, where they were met with fierce resistance from the ISIL."

"Clashes are still ongoing near Manbij, but the SDF fighters are steadily advancing," the sources went on to say; FNA reported.
