Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says he believes the recent deadly bomb attack in Syria’s flashpoint northern city of Manbij, which killed several American soldiers, would not impact US President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from war-torn Syria.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his country’s military forces will have no business in Syria’s northern town of Manbij once Kurdish militants from the US-backed People's Protection Units (YPG) withdraw from the area.
Syria has strongly denounced the presence of Turkish and US troops around the Arab country’s northern town of Manbij, a day after soldiers of both countries entered the outskirts of the flashpoint town as part of a deal reached between Ankara and Washington to purportedly remove US-backed Kurdish militants from the area and “secure” the region.
Turkish troops have reportedly entered the outskirts of the northern Syrian city of Manbij as part of a deal agreed with the United States to remove Washington-backed Kurdish militants from the area and secure the region.
A coalition of Arab and Kurd fighters on Saturday seized the Daesh terror group stronghold of Manbij, two months after launching an operation to capture the strategic city in northern Syria, a monitor said.
