Turkey-backed Syria rebels advance towards Manbij

Syrian opposition fighters have captured several villages south of Jarablus- a city they captured from ISIL last week.

Now the rebels have retaken many villages south of Jarablus, the group backed by Turkey is advancing towards the city of Manbij a YPG stronghold in northern Syria. Turkey which considers the YPG an extension of the PKK, says its military offensive will continue until the YPG retreats east of the Euphrates river.
