Turkey may open another front in Syria’s northern Manbij city, which is under the control of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), a source in the Turkish Armed Forces told Trend Jan. 26.
According to the source, Manbij is the center of PYD and YPG deployment.
"The Turkish Armed Forces, together with the Free Syrian Army, successfully continue military operations to liberate Syria’s Afrin city," the source said, adding that the measures within Operation Olive Branch will cover not only Afrin.
Meanwhile, the Turkish Air Force has recently attacked Manbij as part of Operation Olive Branch, which is under the control of PYD and YPG terrorist organizations.
On Jan. 20, the Turkish Armed Forces, together with the Free Syrian Army, launched the Operation Olive Branch in Afrin, Syria.
F-16 fighter planes of the Turkish Air Force, which are inflicting air strikes on the positions of PYD on the Syrian-Turkish border, are involved in the operation.
