Syrian Democratic Forces Advancing On ISIS Forces Near Manbij, Syria

Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are currently taking the fight to ISIS in and around the city of Manbij in Syria in a broader effort to reclaim their whole country.

The SDF are making advances in Manbij, which is an ISIS stronghold in Syria.

ISIS forces were unfortunately able to re-organize earlier in the month after all military aircraft were ordered to be kept grounded in the country, which was a result of the attempted military coup in Turkey. U.S. aircraft in the region were also kept grounded, preventing them from conducting airstrikes.

United States officials said at the time that they are working to get aircraft back in the air so they can continue their operations against ISIS.
