Huge Blast Hit US-Backed Militia Base in Manbij

A number of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were killed after a bomb went off at their base in the town of Manbij in Northeastern Syria on Saturday.

A bomb went off at a base of the SDF-affiliated Military Police in Moshfa al-Amal Square, inflicting a number of casualties on the militia group and civilians.

In the meantime, a number of civilians, including a child, were killed in a blast in al-Hakamah street in Manbij two days ago.

No one has thus far claimed responsibility for the blasts.

The report came as the SDF continues arresting young people under a forced recruiting plan in Manbij.

An Arab media outlet reported earlier this month that one of the senior field commanders of the SDF succumbed to injuries he suffered in a bomb blast near the town of Manbij in Northeastern Aleppo.

The Lebanese al-Manar TV channel reported that Abdul Rahman Mahmoud Jafar, a senior commander of the SDF-affiliated Manbij Military Council, succumbed to wounds in the town of Manbij after he suffered severe injuries in a bomb explosion on a road connecting al-Jazeera region to Manbij.
