BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – A large group of reinforcements from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) made their way from Aleppo city to the outskirts of Manbij this afternoon, a military source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army reinforcements were deployed to the northwestern outskirts of Manbij, where they were ordered to stand their ground against any potential Turkish aggression on the city.

The reinforcements were mostly comprised of soldiers from the Republican Guard units that were deployed in the northeastern part of Aleppo.

More reinforcements are expected to head to the outskirts of Manbij in the coming hours as they attempt to ward off the Turkish-backed rebels that are threatening to capture the city from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
