The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), primarly consisting of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), will leave the key northern Syrian city of Manbij to the Syrian military, the Russian Defense Ministry announced on Friday.

The Syrian army will reach Manbij, which is currently under control by the SDF,  on Friday, Lt. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy said during a media briefing.

Earlier today, reports already appeared that Syrian army troops had started to spread across SDF-held villages in the western countryside of Manbij. Rumors even appeared that units of the Russian Military Police can be deployed in the area.
