The US-backed Kurdish YPG (People’s Protection Units) personnel will leave the Syrian town of Manbij, spokesman for the Syrian Kurdish military council Shervan Darwish announced on Wednesday.

“An agreement with the YPG was reached to withdraw its military advisors from Manbij, given that the YPG will conclude the withdrawal in the few coming days,” Darwish said.

The spokesperson noted: “We warn Turkey which attempts to impose its policies over the region ignoring safety and security in Manbij; we are against the mess in areas occupied [by Turkey] in north of Syria, where infighting, killing, arresting and kidnapping take place such as in Jarabulus, Al-Bab, Azaz, and Afrin.”

A roadmap for Manbij had been announced on Monday following a meeting between Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, suggesting the withdrawal of YPG personnel from the area.

It seems that Erdogan has many best friends, US and Russia all the time give space to him to take Syrian soil and murder Syrian civilians and Assad just waching.

Unfortunately this, “we are against the mess in areas occupied [by Turkey] in north of Syria, where infighting, killing, arresting and kidnapping take place such as in Jarabulus, Al-Bab, Azaz, and Afrin”, responsibility lies on the shoulders of the Kurds in rejecting Syria’s sovereignty and the out stretched hand of Syria and Russia. There will be no autonomous region for the Kurds as the “Peter Principle” has been reached by the Kurds.
