The YPG-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia claimed on Friday that it would hand over the town of Tabqa, west of Raqqa, to a local council after securing and removing the mines and issued a statement declaring that.

"We declare that the administration of Tabqa city will be given to a civilian council to manage its matters, along with its internal security forces, after the city is fully secured and cleared of mines and remnants of the military operations," the statement said.

On the fate of the Euphrates dam, which has also been under their control for 48 hours, the militias said: "We declare that the Euphrates Dam is a Syrian national institution, which will serve all Syrian areas without exception."

SDF militias are trying to legitimize their presence in the Arab regions they control forming local councils to manage the area without any pressure or criticism. In April, the militias announced the formation of a civilian council to run the city of Raqqa, in preparation for the takeover with the support of the International Alliance.

The Kurdish protection units (YPG) had taken control of the entire city of Tabqa, after nearly 50 days of fighting, suffered heavy losses of lives and equipment, and IS organization also lost hundreds of its militants as well during the battle.
