A Turkish drone was neutralized by Manbij Military Council (MMC) fighters in a village to the northwest of the Manbij Canton.

The Manbij Military Council (MMC) announced that a drone of the invading Turkish state had been neutralized by their forces.

According to the MMC statement on Tuesday, the drone was downed in the village of al-Sayada to the northwest of the Manbij Canton.

The rural areas and villages in Manbij Canton are bombed on almost a daily basis by the Turkish forces and allied mercenaries.

Manbij is located 30 kilometers south of the Turkish border and occupies a key strategic position in Turkey’s plans to expand its illegal occupation zone in northern Syria. The city, which is administered by the Democratic Autonomous Administration, is located on the important M4 highway, which runs through northern Syria like a lifeline and was a strategic supply route for ISIS.

In 2022, Manbij was named by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan as the primary target for a new invasion of northern and eastern Syria. There have been repeated attacks by the Turkish army and allied jihadist militias as well as infiltration attempts aimed primarily at civilian settlement areas with the aim of displacing the population.
