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reinforce Manbij comes just weeks after U.S. President Donald Trump announced that his nation’s armed forces were being withdrawn from Syria.
While the U.S. has withdrawn weapons from some of their bases, no American troops have actually left the country.
