As a result of the air strike of the international coalition led by the United States 5 civilians were killed in the city of Al Tabqah. The strike was aimed at supporting the offensive of the Kurds.
At the moment, Kurdish militia units have advanced deeply into the city of Al Tabqah and significantly squeezed the ISIS fighters. It is reported that the Kurds have already captured a local radio station. The militiamen also repulsed the terrorists’ attack on the previously liberated airport near the city.
The attack on Al Tabqah is now in full swing. Kurds have every chance to win and it remains a mystery why the United States carried out the useless air strike.
