BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reentered the town of Al-‘Arimeh, today, after withdrawing from it during the Turkish Army’s Afrin campaign earlier this year.

According to a source in Aleppo city, the Syrian Arab Army, alongside the Russian military, reentered Al-Arimeh after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) agreed to hand it over to Damascus on Tuesday.

The source said that the Syrian Arab Army and Russian military entered Al-‘Arimeh with a convoy of over 40 vehicles and hundreds of soldiers.

Al-‘Arimeh is strategically located along the Al-Bab-Manbij Highway, which is also a front-line area between the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA).

With Al-‘Arimeh under their control, the Syrian Arab Army is now within distance of Manbij’s southwestern axis.

No agreement has been made between the Syrian Democratic Forces and Syrian Arab Army regarding the future of Manbij and there is a good chance nothing will be put in place before the Turkish military launches their invasion to capture the town.

Basher Asaad and Syria work with the Kurds while the US turned a blind eye on the Kurds and allows Turkey to use NATO weapons to murder Christians

@Guy Bocian, NATO has no troops or weapons they belong to the individual pact members.

Probably a gentleman’s agreement between he SDF on the one hand and the SAA/Russians on the other. Still, if the SAA can’t establish bases and posts quick enough in and around Manbij before the Turks attack, perhaps the Kurds can act as a tripwire and the SAA can owe them one?
