MANBIJ, Syria – The Turkish-backed “Syrian Interim Government” has announced that military operations with Turkish-backing has not only begun in Afrin, but also in Manbij.
Manbij is significant as unlike in Afrin, where operations have already begun, it hosts US military personnel illegally operating in Syria.
Turkey as a NATO member, just like the US, could see their partners fleeing as the Turkish military and its proxy forces advance against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).
Overnight, underground cells of the Free Syrian Army distributed letters to civilians to tell them about the upcoming operation. Details can be read here.
