Syria: Senior ISIL Security Official Killed in Clashes with SDF near Manbij


The top commander of Hasaba (the ISIL monitoring-security system) in the town of Manbij in Northeastern Aleppo was killed in heavy fighting with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), informed sources said Tuesday.

Abu al-Haja, originally from the village of Owseh Jeli, was killed in clashes with the Kurdish-led SDF fighters in the village of Hod Hod one kilometer to the East of Manbij.

Heavy clashes are underway in Hod Hod that have claimed the lives of scores of the terrorists so far.

Reports said earlier today that the SDF won more clashes against the ISIL near the strategic town of Manbij in Northeastern Aleppo and captured more territories in the region.

The SDF fighters pushed the ISIL back from the villages of Sahneh al-Kabireh, Saeediyeh, Saqireh and Um al-Satah near Mabij, which not only ended in the killing or wounding of tens of the militants but destroyed their military equipment in large scale.
