Aleppo, Syria (11:30 A.M.) – The US-backed “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) continued their advance in the northeastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate on Sunday, seizing another village from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) near the recently liberated city of Menbeij.

According to the SDF’s official media wing, their forces, backed by the US AIr Force, liberated the village of Al-Kasra in Menbeij’s southeastern countryside after overrunning the Islamic State’s defenses earlier today.

With the recent liberation of Menbeij city, the Syrian Democratic Forces have shifted their attention to the key ISIS-held town of Al-Bab, which is located in the eastern Aleppo countryside.

Al-Bab was once contested by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA); however, they redirected their forces to Palmyra before reaching the town’s outskirts.

Once al-Bab only surrounded, Da’ish will be in a death trap.

SAA didnt even came near al-bab…they liberated only the eastern industrial part of aleppo…

and SDF forces liberated more than one village.

and they will probably liberate Khafsah and Arima and surrounding villages in the next weeks
