Field and local developments:

The United States-led International Coalition established a military base in the Manbij area, 80 kilometers east of Aleppo, Northern Syria, near the village of Aoun al-Daddat, where Turkish forces are stationed. The base includes soldiers from Britain, France and the United States.

An official of the International Coalition against the Islamic State (ISIS) stated that in the next days France will establish a military base in the Manbij area near the US base, which is located between Manbij city and Aoun al-Daddat village.

Earlier today, the Syrian Democratic Forces closed the road of Jisr Karkuzaq, east of Manbij city, from 6:00 am to 9:00 am, because a US military convoy passed towards the city of Tall Abyad in ar-Raqqa.

A British delegation, including Senator Maurice Glasman of the British Senate, British Labor Party member Lloyd Russell Moel, and two British union officials, visited the Kurdish Autonomous Administration in the city of al-Qamishli, al-Hasakah, Northeast Syria. They discussed the situation in and the displacement of persons from the area of ​​Afrin.

The general commander of the al-Shamiya Front of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Hossam Yassin, announced his resignation. The Shura Council approved the resignation of Yassin, without mentioning the reasons for the resignation. The resignation comes after dozens of expelled fighters from the Front attacked its headquarters, expressing their resentment against Yassin's behavior.

Clerics and dignitaries in Idlib announced the launch of the Popular Initiatives Union to stop the attrition between the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and the Syrian Liberation Front. The gathering includes sheikhs, university professors, doctors, tribal leaders and local councils. The Syrian Liberation Front announced its agreement to the initiative and its readiness for a ceasefire.

ISIS regained control of the village of Sawab and the Akash oil field, west of the city of al-Bukamal (120 kilometers southeast of Deir ez-Zor), during battles against loyalist forces, which killed around 11 of the latter, whilst also wounding others. No information was given on ISIS' losses.

Political and international developments:

The Syrian Human Rights Network documented that in March 2018 the Syrian government arrested 749 people from Eastern Ghouta from the cities and towns of Harasta, Zamlaka, Irbin, Jisreen, Haza and Kafr Batna, all of which the Syrian government forces have recently gained control over. The arrests also occurred in the shelters of Rif Dimashq, indicating how the Syrian government does not exclude women and children from arbitrary arrest and detention.

The United Nations also reported that around 100 thousand people returned to the city of ar-Raqqa, Northeast Syria, despite the widespread presence of undetonated explosives. The UN noted that its team has seen a rise in the level of destruction, with 70 percent of buildings showing clear signs of damage, according to the ar-Raqqa civil council. Also, there has been considerable damage to key infrastructure and services, especially water, electricity and health care.
