BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – The Turkish Army, alongside their allied rebel forces, targeted the US-backed Manbij Military Council’s positions in the northwestern countryside of Manbij on Saturday, the Hawar News Agency reported, citing the Manbij Military Council’s statement.

“The mercenaries of the Turkish occupation army targeted a number of populated villages north-west of Manbij, while the Media Center of Manbij Military Council (MMC) said that the mercenaries have targeted the villages five times since Saturday morning till now,” they began.

“According to what MMC published on its official website, since Saturday morning till now, the mercenaries of the Euphrates Shield that are related to the Turkish occupation have targeted for several times successively Sukkariyya Kabira, Hulwanji and Muhsana villages that are located north and north-west of Manbij city,” they added.

Despite the presence of Russian military police in northern Manbij – specifically, the town of Dadat – the Turkish Army and their rebel allies have still remained rather aggressive around the city.
