After the failed attempt to enter the ISIS-controlled city of Manbij, the Syrian Democratic Forces (the Kurdish YPG and some Arab units) have launched a military operation to the west from Manbij.
SDF units, supported by the US-led coalition air powerm have seized the villages Sayadah and Zunqul and launched an advance in the outskirts of the junction of Arab Hassan Kabir. Separately, ISIS militants have conducted a counter-attack in the direction of Ar Rus.
The situation in the area of Manbij could be considered as a stable. Kurdish units, supported by US warplanes, are gaining the ground in the area. However, they are not able to seize a major city with predominantly Suni Arab population, yet.
