Allied forces claim to have captured over 200 settlements from the Daesh mujahedeen in the northeastern Hasakah province, during the first round of the offensive, that began in late October.
The most recent report suggests that six more villages south of the infamous town of Kobani were liberated on Thursday, ARA News reported on Friday.
“Hours after launching the anti-Daesh campaign south of Kobane, our (SDF) units regained six villages from the terror group,” SDF spokesman Vidan Zinar said.
The joint forces continue to advance along the Euphrates River, with aerial support provided by the US-led coalition.

A Kurdish SDF member told ARA News that the next military target will most probably be a Daesh stronghold near Tishrin Dam on the Euphrates River.
“Liberating Tishrin Dam from the terror group would cut one of the main ISIS supply lines, as it links Raqqa province with Manbij city in the northern countryside of Aleppo,” Sarhad Abbas said.
Clashes have intensified near the northwestern town of Afrin, where “radical jihadist gangs” of the Nusra Front met resistance from the Kurdish militia as the former launched an unsuccessful offensive, ANHA news agency reported.
