US-backed force says resuming anti-IS offensive in east Syria

AFP  |  Qamishli (Syria) 

A Kurdish-led force backed by the US-led anti-jihadist coalition said Sunday that it was resuming its offensive against the Islamic State group in eastern Syria.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), joint Arab-Kurdish units, had announced a suspension to their operation on October 31 after Turkey shelled Kurdish militia posts in northern Syria.

The SDF said the resumption followed "intensive contacts" with the international coalition.
