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.
