On June 22, SDF units (mainly Kurdish YPG) moved close to the Manbij silos that had been an ISIS HQ in the southern part of the city. The SDF seized Qanat al-Sheikh Tabash while ISIS re-gained Tel Yasti. The contol of the Yasti axis is important as it overlooks the whole city.
Meanwhile, the US-led coalition air power made 12 airstrikes, destroying ISIS fighting positions and tactical units.
