ISIS reported that the operation was "a response to crimes committed by coalition military aircraft against the vulnerable groups of the population, men, women and children in Manbij city."
Human rights activists last week said that the United States made air strikes on the city of Manbij, which is under the control of ISIS and killed more than 100 people.
