Syrian opposition reinforces front line with YPG/PPK

The Syrian armed opposition in the Euphrates Shield Operation area has sent military reinforcements to the front line along with YPG/PKK-held area in eastern Syria, according to an opposition official on Monday. 

The Hamza Division, which is a member of the Turkey-backed Free Syria Army (FSA), dispatched fighters and armored vehicles to the border line between YPG/PKK-occupied areas and regime-held areas, Abu Yazan, an FSA commanding officer, told Anadolu Agency. 

He said the troops will take up important tasks during a highly anticipated Turkish military operation in the northern city of Manbij. 

“Our units headed out to contact regions occupied by YPG/PKK terrorists,” Yazan said. 

He warned civilians to stay away from YPG/PKK occupied areas. 

“We will liberate Manbij by sweeping away terrorists from the area,” he said.
