A Syrian man drives a three wheeler on a street in the northern Syrian town of Manbij as civilians go back to their homes on August 14, 2016 more than a week after the Arab-Kurdish alliance, known as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), pushed the Islamic State (IS) group out of the city.
The last remaining IS fighters abandoned the city of Manbij near the Turkish border on August 12, 2016 after a rout the Pentagon said showed the extremists were 'on the ropes'. The retreat from the city which IS captured in 2014 was the jihadists' worst defeat yet at the hands of the SDF backed by US air power. / AFP / DELIL SOULEIMAN        (Photo credit should read DELIL SOULEIMAN/AFP/Getty Images)
