The explosion killed a security officer of the US-backed group and injured ten civilians, according to the Hawar News Agency (ANHA).

“Our forces call on all citizens to report any suspicious movement or suspicious device, in order to maintain the security and safety of our areas,” the SDF security forces, commonly known as Asayish, said in an official statement released after the attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, yet. However, ISIS cells are known to be operating in Manbij. Earlier this year, a suicide bomber of the terrorist group killed four U.S. Army contractors and service members in the city’s center.

The SDF and the US-led coalition arrested more than 20 ISIS members in the course of a recent large-scale security operation in southern Deir Ezzor. Manbij attack may have been a response to the operation.
