Syrian-Kurdish YPG fighters are reinforcing the town of Manbij, captured this month from Islamic State, with weapons and personnel, security sources in the region told Reuters on Monday.

A Syrian rebel commander said on Sunday that Turkey-backed rebels aimed to capture the city from Kurdish-allied forces.

Manbij, on the west bank of the Euphrates River, was captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces alliance, which includes the Kurdish YPG militia, in an offensive backed by the United States.
