BEIRUT, June 18 : Islamic State group jihadists have launched a wave of suicide and car bombings to defend a besieged stronghold in northern Syria against US-backed fighters, a monitor said on Saturday.
A Kurdish-Arab alliance last week encircled the city of Manbij and severed a key supply route used by IS from the Turkish border to the jihadists' de facto Syrian capital, Raqa.
But since then the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), supported by US air strikes, have been slowed by almost daily suicide bombings by IS, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
On Friday, IS carried out two suicide attacks and five car bombings in the southwestern suburbs of Manbij.    ?AFP
