UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The Syrian army, who, according to the decision of official Damascus, advanced to the north of the country to counter the Turkish operation “Source of Peace” against Kurdish gangs, entered the city of Manbij. It is located 85 kilometers northeast of the provincial center of Aleppo.
As reported Reuters, citing local television channels, the Kurdish units of the “People’s Self-Defense Forces” (SNA), freely passed government troops through their posts.
As expected, in the coming hours, Syrian troops will enter the city of Kobani on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, 150 kilometers from Aleppo. According to some reports, earlier such an agreement was reached between the SNA and Damascus.
The cities of Manbij and Kobani are located near the border with Turkey, west of the Syrian regions, where Ankara conducts its military operation.
