CENTCOM: US troops will not withdraw from Manbij


U.S. troops will not withdraw from Manbij, Northern Syria, Gen. Joseph Votel, the commander of the United States Central Command, told CNN International.

In response to Turkish threats by Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Votel said withdrawing U.S. forces from Manbij is “not something we are looking into”.

US special forces are patrolling in Manbij between Syrian Democratic Forces and Turkish supported Euphrates Shield area.

Turkish president Erdogan declared that Turkey will launch an operation against Manbij.
