BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 A.M.) – The Russian Army and U.S.-backed Manbij Military Council conducted their third round of patrols in the Manbij countryside this month.

According to local reports, the Russian Army and Manbij Military Council patrolled much of the western countryside of Manbij, with most of their focus on the nearby town of Al-Arima.

Al-Arima is where the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has been stationed at since they made an agreement with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to protect Manbij from the Turkish-backed rebels.

Despite the agreement, the Syrian Arab Army is still outside the city and will not enter until further notice.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
