The U.S. is taking measures against a possible counter-terror operation led by Turkey in Syria's northern Manbij district.

The U.S. has deployed military reinforcements to Manbij, west of Euphrates River, according to information received from trustworthy local sources in Manbij.

Approximately 300 U.S. soldiers arrived in Manbij in a convoy which included many armored vehicles and construction machines.

The reinforcements were deployed near the Sajur River, which forms the frontline between Euphrates Shield area and YPG/PKK invaded area.

Also, reinforcements were deployed around Zub'ul Bayn village, west of Manbij.

The additional forces are now patrolling Sajur River shore daily. Previously, the patrols occurred weekly.

The U.S. forces are also patrolling Ras al-Ayn area, opposite Turkey's Ceylanpinar border gate, since the last three days.

Manbij district was invaded by YPG/PKK terror group in Aug. 2016 with U.S. support.
