BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – The U.S. envoy for Syria reportedly visited northern Syria on Monday as the Coalition and Turkish forces prepare to start joint patrols in the city of Manbij.

The U.S. envoy for Syria James Jeffrey traveled to northern city of Manbij on Monday to meet with several officials from the Manbij Military Council, the pro-SDF Furat FM reported.

Jeffrey reportedly briefed the SDF officials about his recent visits to both Turkey and Saudi Arabia, while also discussing the upcoming joint patrols inside of Manbij.

The U.S. official’s visit to Manbij comes just a day after U.S. Army General Joseph Votel told reporters that the Turkish and Coalition soldiers are wrapping up their training exercises near this imperative city near the Turkish border.

Manbij was captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in 2016 after they launched a big offensive against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Manbij) terrorist organization in northeastern Aleppo.
