According to local activists, the YPG was seen raising trenches and building new positions in Western Manbij amid reports of a possible military operation by the Turkish Army, massdar news reported.
Furthermore, the YPG brought in reinforcements in order to strengthen their forces around Manbij.
The Turkey's recent comments about the presence of Kurdish fighters inside Manbij has raised a lot of red flags for the YPG, as it appears Ankara is preparing to launch a new operation to expel the group from the city.
While the US currently has a military presence in Manbij, it appears Turkey is not willing to budge; they are demanding the complete withdrawal of the YPG or else they will attack.
