BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition is still inside the city of Manbij in northeast Syria, despite an agreement that was established between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

In response to the Syrian Arab Army’s announcement regarding Manbij, the U.S. Coalition tweeted on Friday afternoon that these claims are untrue

“Despite incorrect information about changes to military forces in the city of Manbij, Syria, #CJTFOIR has seen no indication that these claims are true. We call on everyone to respect the integrity of Manbij and the safety of its citizens,” the U.S. Coalition tweeted on Friday.

A photo from Manbij would later be released by local activists, confirming that the U.S. Coalition was still active inside of the city.

What game are US and Turks playing? Handing over Manbij to the Sultan?

Assad must stay

It seems to be the case. Strange from US. Where is freedom? Gone away, far!

@Assad must stay, not strange. The US started to be that way more than a hundred years ago. Wilson’s 14 points during WW I were a war ruse aimed to deceit my home country.

p.s. Today I saw a Youtube video that said that the US claims about the US War of Independence are mostly myths. And that the US got independent because a free mason called on his European/French connections .

It looks like the SAA is now protecting the US Army from Turkish forces.Very funny development… But there is something fishy about the whole situation.

Russia, Turkey, the SAA, the SDF, the FSA and local Manbij officials need to come out with a joint statement requesting that the US withdraw immediately from the region so that there is one less complication to this mess.
