TEHRAN (Defapress)- The Arabic-language al-Manar TV reported that the Turkish army deployed several military vehicles in the village of al-Jatal Northwest of Manbij to reinvigorate its forces in Northeastern Aleppo.
A Manbij Military Council commander disclosed last week that the council and the Democratic Civil Management running the region intended to hand over Manbij to the Syrian Army forces.
The Arabic-language al-Watan daily quoted the commander as disclosing that the military council and the civil management would never concede to Turkey's reign over the town, underlining that Ankara's presence and control over the town is a flagrant case of occupation.
It further said that talks are underway between Damascus representatives and the Manbij military council to pave the ground for handing over the town to the Syrian Army forces.
The daily went on to say that residents in and even villagers on the countryside of Manbij are urging deployment of Syrian army troops in the town.
Al-Watan further said that Moscow will soon resume talks with Turkey to persuade them to take note of people's call and end presence in Manbij.
