Two soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) surrendered themselves to the Euphrates Shield forces on Saturday; effectively, the Turkish Armed Forces and Turkish-backed rebels have captured 8 SAA soldiers over the past 72 hours.

The two unnamed Syrian soldiers, members of the Syrian Air Force Intelligence, were taken into captivity after clashes in a contested area east of Al-Bab by a predominately Turkmen brigade of the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Subsequently, the prisoners of war were beaten by FSA militants:

Meanwhile, the SAA captured 5 villages from ISIS amid a push towards the Islamic State stronghold of Deir Hafer.

In related news, a Russian convoy reached the city of Manbij today to facilitate a deal reached between the SAA and ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) which would have the latter conceded a bunch of villages to the former.

Meanwhile, US special forces are also present in Manbij city and its countryside. Earlier today, an American convoy was spotted at the southern bank of the Sajour River, north of Manbij.
