BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 P.M.) – A large convoy of Turkish-backed rebels were seen heading towards the front-lines in the northern Aleppo town of Manbij this week.

The convoy reportedly consisted of rebel fighters from the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) that were deployed all over the Idlib and Aleppo provinces.

As shown in the short video below, the Turkish-backed rebels were heading towards the front-lines in Manbij with a large number of vehicles and military personnel:

Manbij is currently under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF); it also has several units of the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) deployed around the town.

Due to the YPG’s presence in Manbij, the Turkish military has set their sights on capturing this town next.

No amount of shekels and deception is going to prevent the now inevitable crash of the Rojave dream as we seem to be approaching the exactly same scenario as with Afrin. The Kurds were living the dream under the US protectorate, suddenly they have no policies (they were also supplied by the US) and are just going to whittle away
