    The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have eliminated 10 Daesh militants who attacked Kurdish-led troops in the area of Ayed Kebir village, approximately two miles south of al-Tabqa city in northern Syria.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the Firat news agency, the heavy weaponry attack took place at 5 a.m. local time (02:00 GMT) on Tuesday while sporadic clashes in the area are ongoing.

    In November 2016, the SDF, which predominately consists of Kurdish fighters but also includes members of the Syrian Arab Coalition, launched an operation called the Wrath of Euphrates to seize control over Syria's Raqqa, the de facto Daesh capital. Al-Tabqa is located some 27 miles to the east of Raqqa.
