The Prime Minister of Turkey has that his country would rather have the Syrian Army take control of the town of Manbij rather than Kurdish forces.

Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım has said if the Syrian government were to take control of Manbij, it would not be a be a negative development as they “don’t want a YPG presence there.”

The People’s Protection Units, otherwise known as the YPG, are affiliated with the Turkey-based outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party, and both are recognized as terrorist groups by Ankara.

The terrorist group Ahrar al-Sham, who are a part of the Turkish-led Euphrates Shield, said they would go for Manbij, and this has also been reciprocated by Turkish President Erdogan, whose military is allied to the militant group.
