Turkey - SMART

The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said that Turkey and the United States will supervise the withdrawal of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) from the town of Manbij, 80 kilometers east of Aleppo, Northern Syria.

Cavusoglu threatened to launch another military operation in Manbij after the Olive Branch operation in Afrin if the Turkish-American plan to withdraw the SDF from Manbij fails. The plan will be submitted during talks scheduled for Mar. 19.

Cavusoglu added that the Turkish government will supervise the withdrawal of the weapons given to the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) by the United States, pointing out that this weapons supply was the main reason behind Turkish-American tensions.

On Mar. 10, the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said that his country will aim to "purify Manbij, Ayn al-Arab, Tal Abiad, Ras al-Ayn and Qamishli of terrorists, after purifying Afrin."

Erdogan's declarations coincided with the advance of the Olive Branch Operation factions towards Afrin. The factions have reached the eastern perimeters of Afrin after already gaining control of the areas of Bulbul, Raju, Sheikh al-Hadid, Sheran, and Jindayris.

On Jan. 21, 2018, the Turkish Army, along with factions of the Free Syrian Army, launched the Olive Branch military operation in the Afrin area, which has until now been controlled by the SDF and its main component, the YPG.
