Residents in one town of Syria are in celebration For the first time in over two-and-a-half years as the women of Manbij, Syria walked with their faces uncovered Saturday and the Men shaved or trimmed their beards. Smokers of both sexes lit up and puffed away.

Excerpt From Fox News:
U.S.-backed fighters seized the key northern Syria city late Friday after two months of heavy fighting that killed more than 1,000 people and displaced thousands more. The fighters also freed hundreds of civilians the extremists had used as human shields, Syrian Kurdish officials and an opposition activist group said. Amateur videos showed civilians hugging fighters from the predominantly Kurdish Syria Democratic Forces (SDF) after being evacuated from the final ISIS-held neighborhood.
