The Manbij Military Council (MMC) has made a statement saying it has reached an agreement with the Syrian Army and Russian forces to transfer the defense of the line to the West of Manbij city.

Clashes have continued between Turkish-backed FSA groups and MMC fighters since Wednesday on the western and northwestern border of Manbij.

The statement by the MMC, a component of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on Thursday read:
‘Protecting civilians from the negative affects of war, defending Manbij’s security and nullifying Turkey’s invasion plans in Syria are some of the objectives the Manbij Military Council has for all the peoples of Syria.
To reach these objectives we have transferred, after reaching a new alliance [agreement] with Russia, the defence of the line to the west of Manbij – where the villages between us and the gang groups [FSA] affiliated to the Turkish army are – to Syrian state forces.’
