Helicopters reportedly belonging to the US military were spotted flying over the Manbij area of northern Syria on Friday, in footage filmed from Jarablus.

The US choppers were reportedly flying over the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers that were moved into the Manbij area after an agreement was made with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

As shown in the short video below, the US choppers can be seen flying along the Turkish border near the city of Manbij:

Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) called earlier for Syrian government forces to enter Manbij in order to protect the city from a threatened Turkish offensive.

Perhaps the Americans should be monitoring Turkish army/militia movements to inform the SDF. Just saying…..

The entire globe is walking on egg shells in this part of Syria but the good thing is that Trump, for all the sticks he gets can count on the rationality of the Russians because deep down he is a man whose prime interest is seeing peaceful mercantile activities flow as opposed to the traders of Wars& conflicts. I wish same can be said of those who unfotuately are in that pool that he governs….

Trump for all his ills has been keeping his promises. Still waiting for repeal of Johnson era legislation which turned our great church institutions into secular,in catholic name only institutions.

A gay who promises to kill somebody and keeps his promiss, does that make the man a hero or just a stubborn idiot and murderer?
