ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Syrian city of Manbij, where seven US-backed Kurdish fighters were killed.

In a statement, ISIS said the caliphate soldiers attacked a checkpoint of the ‘apostate’ PKK [Kurdistan Worker’s Party]" in western Manbij using machine guns, Reuters reported.

Meanwhile, a statement by the northern city's military council said the attack took place by the militant group's sleeper cells overnight on Monday, only days after SDF declared defeating the extremists in the eastern village of Baghouz.
