DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:40 P.M.) – ISIS militants on the northern outskirts of Tabqa face certain death as commanders of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have decided to take no prisoners, killing scores of jihadist militants consequently.

Yesterday, ISIS launched a massive offensive on the neighboring town of Al-Safsafah in a bid to reach Raqqa but were completely foiled, leaving some 53 ISIS militants dead on the battlefield in the aftermath of the clashes, according to the SDF.

Although Tabqa is entirely under Kurdish control, ISIS insurgents still hold a small enclave of territory north of the city at the adjacent dam. Skirmishes are ongoing as we speak.

Over 200 reinforcements of the Manbij Military Council are also involved in the clashes which are spearheaded by YPG contingents.

Once the battle for Tabqa is concluded, the US-backed SDF are expected to strike towards Raqqa city in a bid to liberate the provincial capital.
