Trusted sources confirmed that the YPG took hold of the al-Manajer area after violent clashes that broke out earlier this morning with the ISIS, al-Nusra and rebel fighters which ended by the YPG taking complete control over the area. The YPG also took hold of the Tal Half and Asfar Najjar areas in Reef Ras al-A’in city earlier this morning after violent clashes between both sides.
