The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continued their advances against ISIS in the Northeastern part of Manbij, inflicting major casualties and losses on the Takfiri terrorists.

The SDF fighters, in several hours of heavy fighting, beat ISIL terrorists back from Sheikh Aqil neighborhood and an industrial area in the Northeastern districts of Manbij.

ISIS left tens of dead or wounded members behind and retreated from the battlefront.

The SDF combatants launched clean-up operation as soon as the ISIL forces left Sheikh Aqil and the industrial zone.

Kurdish sources announced on Saturday that the SDF fighters were pushing ISIL back from the remaining militant-held part of Manbij and were about to complete liberation of the key town in Northeastern Aleppo.

"ISIL has captured over 500 civilians, mainly children and women, and is using them as human shield. This matter has delayed liberation of central part of Manbij," the sources said.

"The SDF fighters have stormed ISIL positions in Central Manbij, Earth Square and al-Amni Square and have launched an operation to free the captured civilians to decrease human casualties in the battlefield," the sources added.

"Al-Tal neighborhood and al-Thowrah school are under full control of the SDF," they added.

"ISIS has no way out. Liberation of Manbij will be announced very soon," the sources underlined, FNA reported.
