US-Turkey Agreement on Manbij Unacceptable : Russia

US-Turkey Agreement on Manbij Unacceptable
The Russia-run Humeimim airbase in Lattakia province announced that the Washington-Ankara agreement on the city of Manbij in Northern Syria is not acceptable.

The Russian airbase announcement came on Wednesday in reaction to an agreement reached between the US and Turkey on a roadmap for Manbij city.

"The agreement on Manbij reached between Turkey and the US is by all means rejected," Russia's Humeimim airbase said.

It reiterated that the agreement has been reached without coordination with the Syrian government and between two countries that are illegally present in Syria; "hence such agreement is void".

In relevant remarks on Thursday, Manbij Military Council voiced its strong opposition to the Turkish army's military presence in the Northern Aleppo city amid the US delegation's arrival there after Washington and Ankara struck a deal over the city.

"We will not accept Turkish military presence in Manbij city," the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television network quoted Manbij Military Council Spokesman Shirvan Dervish as saying.



  1. A large Turkish military convoy was photographed entering the western countryside of the Aleppo Governorate last night.

    According to pro-opposition activists, the Turkish military convoy was seen moving towards the town of Khan Al-‘Assal, which is close to the Syrian Arab Army’s front-lines.

  2. Turkish sources claimed that the Kurdish forces are still in Manbij in Northeastern Aleppo despite their previous claim on retreating from the city.
    This comes as the Central Command of the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units announced that the YPG forces had retreated from Manbij after the Turkish government and the US struck an agreement over the Syrian city.

    "The Kurdish units have not left the city yet and some of them are in Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) uniforms," the Turkish-language Anatoly News Agency reported.
