Syrian troops enter northern, Kurdish-held town of Manbij

Beirut: Syrian state forces have entered the northern, Kurdish-held town of Manbij as part of a deal with the Kurds to confront a Turkish incursion after the US withdrew troops. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that Syrian troops had entered the town, and footage showing people in Manbij welcoming the troops was broadcast on Syrian state television.
Russian state media cited the Russian Defence Ministry as saying that the Syrian army had established “full control over Manbij and nearby inhabited communities.” (dpa)
