The US military has set up a military base in the YPG-held town of Manbij in the Syrian province of Aleppo in order to ‘defend’ the city from an attack by Turkish military, Sputnik Turkiye reported, citing a representative of the so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces”.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) is a US-backed “multi-ethnic and multi-religious alliance” opearing in northeastern Syria, at least according to the mainstream media. Indeed, the SDF mainly consists of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and has been created in order to cover the US backing of the YPG.
Meanwhile, a fresh video appeared depicting units of the US Special Forces deployed in the area of Manbij.
The video shows 4 Humvee vehicles with US flags and at least 1 US military serviceman near them.
