Syrian Army Surrounds Manbij to Block Way on Turkish Forces' AdvanceAccording to a military source near Manbij, the Syrian Arab Army has deployed their Republican Guard, 1st Armored Division, and 4th Armored Division at the Western, Southern and Eastern flanks of the town of Manbij, the AMN reported.

The Syrian army was able to reach the Eastern axis of Manbij after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) reportedly transferred control of the Tishrin Dam to the government troops.

With thousands of rebel troops situated at the Northern outskirts of the city, the Syrian Arab Army is taking precautionary measures to prevent a potential invasion of Eastern Aleppo and Western Raqqa.

Despite the recent talks between the Russian and Turkish governments regarding the situation in Syria, Ankara is still not convinced that the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) have withdrawn from Manbij.

As a result of this, the Turkish military and their allies have chosen to remain active at the Northern part of the town.
