U.S.-Backed Forces Pushing ISIS From Syrian City|News Week

U.S.-backed forces have now seized control of almost 70 percent of Manbij in northern Syria from the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) after making rapid advances over the past two days, a spokesman said on Sunday.

Syria Democratic Forces (SDF) have pushed back the ultra-hardline Sunni militants into the old quarter after seizing most of the western, eastern and southern sectors of the city, Sharfan Darwish of the SDF-allied Manbij military council told Reuters in Beirut by telephone.
