’SDF’ hand over 5 villages near Manbij to Assad terrorists

"’SDF’

The PKK-affiliated militias, ’Syria Democratic Forces’ (SDF), handed over the control of a number of villages on part of a frontline with Turkey-backed opposition fighters in line with a deal brokered by Russia, Reuters said on Monday citing the militia’s spokesman.

"The handover has taken place..," Sharfan Darwish, the spokesman for the Manbij Military Council, told Reuters. Earlier on Monday, he said around five villages were included in the deal.

The villages west of the city of Manbij have been a focus of fighting since Wednesday between Turkish-backed opposition fighters fighting Assad terrorists, and the Manbij Military Council, which includes the powerful Kurdish YPG militia. 

Turkey’s campaign in Syria is aimed at driving ISIS from its border and preventing expansion in the area by the YPG, which it regards as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

’SDF’ said last Thursday it would hand back to Assad regime control villages on a front line where it has been fighting Turkish-backed opposition fighters.
