A Syrian woman has celebrated the liberation of her town from ISIS militants by tearing off her burqas and burning it.
The U.S.-backed Syria Democratic Forces (SDF) announced on Friday they had seized full control of the town of Manbij near the Turkish border after the departure of the last of the extremists, who had been using civilians as human shields.
It prompted a huge outpouring of emotion among the local residents in the city, who lit cigarettes, with some men even cutting off their beards, which was banned under the rule of the terror group.
