Citizens of the northern Syrian city of Manbij express their happiness on the anniversary of the liberation of their city. Since the expulsion of ISIS, economic dynamism has been picking up in Manbij as the security situation over the past 2 years has improved.
Kurdish YPG claimed on Sunday it had vacated flashpoint town of Manbij near the Turkish border, a longstanding demand by Turkey. The Coalition-backed Manbij Military Council announced that all YPG military advisors have left the city.
A statement issued by the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) has announced that the group will pull out its military advisers from Manbij. The statement comes after Turkey and the US held talks on the northern Syrian town which was liberated from ISIS in 2016.
Washington and Ankara are finalising a roadmap for the city of Manbij in Syria. This agreement will see the departure of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) leave the area, as it is seen as a hostile force by Turkey.
The city of Manbij in Syria sees an improvement in its economic condition with the reopening of markets. Citizens have expressed their happiness regarding the security and economic conditions in their city.
