A member of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) media team and another journalist were injured during clashes between the SDF and the Daesh terror group (banned in Russia) in Tabqa, according to media reports on Wednesday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Mazlum Dogan, a member of the SDF media team, and Nazim Dastan, a Dihaber news agency journalist, were injured in the village of Safsafah near Tabqa, ANHA news agency reported.

The journalists’ injuries are believed to be minor.

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces have been fending off assaults by Daesh militants around Tabqa, located about 25 miles from the terror group’s de facto capital of Raqqa.

On Tuesday, a senior US State Department official said the SDF were surrounding Raqqa on three sides after a complex operation to move on Tabqa, including the city airport and an important dam.
