The U.S. backed “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF), captured several new points inside the key town of Menbeij on Tuesday after overwhelming the besieged fighters of the Islamic State of Iraq Al-Sham (ISIS) in northeastern Aleppo.

Backed by U.S. Coalition airstrikes, the Syrian Democratic Forces were able to take control of Bujiya and Bashar roundabouts in Menbeij after a fierce battle on Monday and Tuesday with the Islamic State terrorists.

The Syrian Democratic Forces captured the Bujiya Roundabout in central Menbeij after advancing north from the recently liberated Na’imi District.

Meanwhile, east of the Bujiya Roundabout, the Syrian Democratic Forces capitalized on their momentum from the Al-Mankoubah District and pushed south towards the Menbeij Grain Silos, capturing the Bashar Roundabout in the process.

With the capture of these sites on Tuesday, the Syrian Democratic Forces are now in control of 70 percent of Menbeij, leaving only a handful of isolated pockets left to liberate from the Islamic State.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
