BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – A large convoy of U.S. armored vehicles made its way to the key city of Manbij in the Aleppo countryside this week, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.

According to the SOHR report, the U.S. military sent the armored convoy to reinforce Manbij city, which has also seen a large influx of Turkish-backed rebels recently deploy to the northern outskirts of the city.

As shown in the video below, the U.S. Coalition troops traveled to Manbij in broad daylight as their battle against the Islamic State reaches its conclusion:

This move to reinforce Manbij comes just weeks after U.S. President Donald Trump announced that his nation’s armed forces were being withdrawn from Syria.

While the U.S. has withdrawn weapons from some of their bases, no American troops have actually left the country.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
