Islamic State Launches Counter-Attacks on US-Backed Kurdish Forces in Syria

CAIRO - The Islamic State terror organization on launched Wednesday a counter-attack against positions of the United States-backed Kurdish forces in a northeastern Syrian village.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said in a statement that the IS militants attacked al-Safsafa village, about 14 kilometers (eight miles) to the east of the strategic town of al-Tabqa, in the Syrian province of al-Raqqa.

Meanwhile, the extremists were trying to regain control of the districts captured in al-Tabqa by the SDF, who on Tuesday besieged the areas of al-Mashrafah and al-Tabqa dam.

The IS carried out attacks around al-Tabqa, which resulted in fighting in the First, Second and Third neighborhoods in the modern quarters of the key town.

At least 20 IS militants were killed amid the clashes, the SDF said.

Al-Tabqa is located 53 kilometers (32 miles) to the west of Raqqa, the main IS stronghold in the region.

Since Nov., SDF fighters have launched an offensive, along with the US-led international coalition, against IS militants in Raqqa province.
