The U.S. is protecting the Kurds from “moderate” rebels backed by a NATO member – Turkey.

U.S. Special Forces have arrived in the Manbij countryside. Their function is to enforce a “Demarcation Line” in northern Syria and protect Kurdish fighters from Turkish-backed rebels.

The American military has been active in this region for quite some time.

The US-military said USA continued to help the Kurdish rebels stand up Turkish-backed fighters which would try capture Manbij after the al-Bab operations from the Syrian Democratic Forces, who comprise mostly of the Kurdish YPG militia.

The US-led coalition revealed that their forces will continue to support the Manbij Military Council, despite the threats from their NATO ally -Turkey.

Consequently Washington is sending a clear message to Ankara that USA will show great decision in combating for influence in the region.
