Forces of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) were seen on the streets of Manbij on Friday, as the Syrian Arab Army is due to arrive in the northern Syrian city for the first time in years.

YPG forces can be seen patrolling the streets of Manbij and interacting with locals.

The SAA announced earlier on Friday that government troops had entered the northern city of Manbij, close to the border with Turkey, following a request from the Kurdish YPG for it to protect the location.

Meanwhile, reacting to the SAA’s reported entrance in the city, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country was determined to “destroy” Kurdish militants in Manbij.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
