U.S.-backed Syrian fighters Thursday gave Daesh (ISIS) militants 48 hours to leave the encircled town of Manbij, near the Turkish border, without a fight, a last-ditch effort to protect civilian lives, according to a statement issued by the group.Elsewhere, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 51 civilians were killed in bombing raids on rebel-held areas across Syria. It said at least 13 people, including three children, were killed in government airstrikes and shelling on the Eastern Ghouta area outside the capital Damascus.Government bombardment also hit two neighborhoods of the rebel-held east of Aleppo city, where 15 people were killed, among them six children, the Britain-based Observatory said.The organization said it has not treated any war-wounded Syrians in the emergency room in the Ramtha Government hospital – located about 5 kilometers from the Syrian border – since the closure of Jordan's northern border following the deadly June 21 suicide attack.
