Nearly 30 Takfiri terrorists have been killed in clashes between the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Daesh terrorists in Syria's strategic northern city of Manbij.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) took control of Sabaa Bahrat square and several other areas in the key stronghold of Daesh on Wednesday, the German news agency, DPA, quoted local sources as saying.

According to the report, the SDF forces are now in full control of the neighborhood of Hazwanah in southern Manbij.

The SDF forces also captured the school of Harun to the north of the al-Matahen square in southern Manbij.

Fierce clashes go on in western Manbij.

The report further said the SDF forces also launched rocket attacks at the post office and government institutions in the center of the city.

Sources said the Kurdish forces have taken control of 60 percent of the city so far. The operation to seize full control of Manbij has become more difficult due to the terrorists’ use of car bombs and landmines in the city.

Some 28 Daesh terrorists were killed in the clashes.

The SDF forces have urged residents not to use motorcycles and to travel in the city only from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and to remain indoors the rest of the day.

Residents have also been told to stay about 300 meters away from the areas of clashes.

Manbij lies along the only supply line of Daesh between the Syrian-Turkish border to the north and the group's main stronghold, Raqqah, which lies to the southeast.

If Manbij is liberated, it will be the biggest strategic defeat for Daesh in Syria since July 2015, when the terrorist group lost the strategically important town of Tal Abyad on Syria's border with Turkey.
