Russia: US-Turkey Agreement on Manbij Unacceptable
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russia-run Humeimim airbase in Lattakia province announced that the Washington-Ankara agreement on the city of Manbij in Northern Syria is not acceptable.

The Russian airbase announcement came on Wednesday in reaction to an agreement reached between the US and Turkey on a roadmap for Manbij city.

"The agreement on Manbij reached between Turkey and the US is by all means rejected," Russia's Humeimim airbase said.

It reiterated that the agreement has been reached without coordination with the Syrian government and between two countries that are illegally present in Syria; "hence such agreement is void".

In relevant remarks on Thursday, Manbij Military Council voiced its strong opposition to the Turkish army's military presence in the Northern Aleppo city amid the US delegation's arrival there after Washington and Ankara struck a deal over the city.

"We will not accept Turkish military presence in Manbij city," the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television network quoted Manbij Military Council Spokesman Shirvan Dervish as saying.

Dervish pointed to the capabilities of Manbij Military Council forces to safeguard the security of Manbij city, and said, "Manbij city is more secure than the Turkish-controlled areas in Northern Syria, including al-Bab, Jarablus and Afrin where killings and blasts have destabilized those regions."

Meantime, Rudaw news website reported that the representative of US President Donald Trump in the international coalition arrived in Manbij on Wednesday.

It noted that the US representative has already had meetings with the commander of Manbij Military Council.

This is the first visit by an American political delegation to Manbij city after the recent agreement between the US and Turkey.

US Military Convoy Forced to Retreat by Syrian Army in Hasaka
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army forced a US military convoy back as it planned to pass through Qamishli in Hasaka province, media reports said Thursday.

An American military convoy was pushed back by the Syrian army before it could reach a military point under the Syrian army's control, Arabic-language Moraseloun news website reported.

The US troops were going to pass by a Syrian army regiment and a military airport near the Southern entrance of Qamishli.

The American military convoy had to retreat after being stopped and inspected by the Syrian army.

In a relevant development in mid-May, the US military forces continued unabated illegal heliborne operations to rescue the ISIL terrorists and commanders from Southeastern Hasaka.

Local sources in Southeastern Hasaka reported that the US forces had conducted the heliborne operations near the town of al-Houl at the borders between Syria and Iraq.

They added that the US forces took one of the ISIL commanders who had entered Hasaka from Iraq in the operation.
