US-backed forces capture Syrian city Manbij

US-backed forces have seized full control of the northern Syrian city of Manbij near the Turkish border, after driving out ISIL. More than 2,000 civilian hostages, who were being used as human shields by the terrorist group, have been freed. Around 500 cars carrying ISIL members and civilians reportedly left Manbij and headed towards Jarablus, a town under ISIL control on the Turkish border. The capture of Manbij is seen as a huge blow to the terrorist group as the city is of strategic importance and a link to both Aleppo and Raqqa, the de facto capital of ISIL.
