Last weekend, the Syrian army’s Tiger Forces successfully repelled all militant advances and reached the strategic Castell Road south of Mallah Farms. This allowed the pro-government forces to set fire control over the Shuqeif Industrial District and Youth Housing Complex. A part of Handarat Camp is also reachable for the government artillery. Separately, the Syrian army has set fire control over Layramoun Roundabout, aggravating significantly the militants’ calabilities to counter attack in the area. Now, when the Castello Road is fully cut off, pro-government forces are advancing on Handarat Camp.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are taking upper hand in the battle against ISIS terrorist group. The SDF has almost seized the southwestern part of city and now is moving towards the city center.

Groups of ISIS fighters remain besieged at areas near Tetbekat prison and al Basel hospital. If they are taken, the SDF will be able to launch a full-scale advance on the city center. In the northwestern part of Manbij, Kurdish units surrounded Al Asqa Mosque that is located west of the Manbij City Hall. US-led coalition airstrikes have been isolating ISIS units in Manbij, destroying bridges and transport infrastructure of the city.

Repports are circulating that 3 US military advisers have been killed in Manbij. They were reportedly supporting SDF operations in the city when an ISIS guided missile hit them. Initially, the report appeared in the media outlet called “Smart News” on July 18 and then was widely disseminated by pro-Iranian sources.

    False.

      Why do Americans and Israelis try to pretend they are from other countries/ethnicities?

    I have seen a video of an American dressed as Ukrainian military screaming he was an American citizen, as some people speaking in what seemed like Russian were giving him a beating.
    That story never made the media.
    Also 12 British SAS were ambushed in Syria by the Syrian army, they were all killed. Cameron went on TV at the time ranting about Syrian war crimes, but the British never admitted that they were in Syria. A few days later 12 UK troops were killed by the Taliban, according to the UK Government.

    The hardened bunkers that Russia bombed when it first moved into Syria are beyond ISIS, and are typically American.

    Why did Russia warn the US to get its people out, if there were no Americans in Syria.

    This has always been a US invasion of Syria, but they use locals as the cannon fodder.

    It is interesting how the article says ISIS guided missile. I think it would be more accurate to say a US made guided missile that was supplied to ISIS by the US was used against US troops.
