U.S.-backed forces battling Islamic State near the Turkish border in northern Syria said on Friday they had launched a final assault to flush the remaining jihadists out of the city of Manbij. The Syria Democratic Forces say there’s a small number of IS fighters, still holing up in Manbij.

"This is the last operation and the last assault," said Sharfan Darwish, a spokesman for the Syrian Arab and Kurdish forces, reported by Reuters

According to France24, Arab and Kurdish fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces, backed by air support from the US-led coalition, have successfully wrested control of the city from Islamic State group jihadists, bringing an end to a long crucible for those who remained in the city during weeks of fighting. 2 million residents were without access to running water or electricity after attacks hit civilian infrastructure last week.
