Sharfan Darwish, of the Kurdish-led Manbij Military Council, told The Associated Press that the Tuesday morning attack hit a checkpoint at one the entrances of Manbij.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but in January, ISIS claimed a suicide attack in Manbij that killed 19 people, including two US service members and two American civilians.
