DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:10 P.M.) – A large ISIS flag in Tabqa city centre was pulled down today by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as their units secured downtown Tabqa, rendering jihadist militants in control of only 3 northern neighborhoods and a small portion of the adjacent Tabqa Dam.

Amid the Kurdish counter-insurgency operations, three car bombs were immobilized and tons of armaments captured. Booby traps and mines were also continuously dismantled while humanitarian corridors have allowed over 20,000 civilians to escape.

Tabqa city was completely encircled on April 2; shortly after, the SDF liberated the Alexandria suburb which served as a launching pad to capture the former ISIS bastion.

Brand new pictures of the SDF’s operations in Tabqa:

US warplanes have aided the offensive with air support, conducted hundreds of airstrikes against ISIS militants while choppers have also been deployed, a relatively new development.

Once Tabqa city is wrestled from ISIS, the YPG-led SDF will head towards Raqqa city, the self-proclaimed ISIS capital since 2014.
