According to Kurdish Firat News Agency, citing SDF commander Rojda Felat, the town and the nearby Euphrates Dam were liberated after more than a month of offensive in the region.
The US-led coalition aviation and US special forces assisted the Syrian rebels in the Tabqa campaign.
Earlier in the day, the Pentagon said that the SDF and the Syrian Arab Coalition had successfully liberated the vast majority of Tabqa and they continued to clear Daesh remnants from the final two neighborhoods of the city.
Dorrian also noted that the largest number of Daesh had relocated to Raqqa, the group’s de facto capital, but a large number of foreign fighters were barricaded at the Tabqa Dam.
In November 2016, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which predominately consists of Kurdish fighters, but also includes members of the Syrian Arab Coalition, launched an operation called the Rage of Euphrates in order to seize control over Syrian Raqqa, the de facto Daesh capital, and are now starting the fourth stage of the campaign aimed at liberating the rural areas of Raqqa province from terrorists.
