The US CENTCOM-linked media account of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Twitter repeated Friday reports about an alleged withdrawal of the Kuridsh People’s Protection Units (part of the SDF) to the eastern bank of Euphrates.
Spokesman of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Talal Silo, also confirmed withdrawal from the areas west of the Euphrates, including Jarablus and Manbij.

The repeated claims about withdrawal (and remaning) from the western bank of Euphrates could indicate some misunderstanding between the SDF/YPG command and YPG units at the battlefield. For sure, it is not good for future operations of the US-led coalition in Syria.
Meanwhile, today morning reports have said that clashes are continuing between the SDF and Turkish-backed militants south of Jarablus.
