Hundreds of civilians have fled Manbij with the help of Kurdish-Arab alliance troops who have surrounded the Daesh-held city in north Syria, says a UK-based monitoring group.

“Around 600 civilians fled on foot towards areas held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) alliance south of the town,” said the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights on Sunday. Director of the observatory, Rami Abdel Rahman, added that the SDF troops transported the civilians to safety.
