Members of the American backed Syrian Democratic Force, comprised of large Kurdish militias and Arab anti-Islamic State fighters, direct an airstrike directly on top of an Islamic State position. This airstrike is part of the current on-going operation to cut off off Islamic State fighters inside of Manjib, Syria from outside support.
In the last few weeks, the operation to clear Manjib has been kicking up a notch. Many American airstrikes have landed on the outskirts of the city as the SDF continues to surround the area preparing for a major clearing operation.
