Turkish armed forces, with the support of the Free Syrian Army, shelled the Syrian border guards at the western part of the city of Manbij, reported the Arabic edition of Al-Masdar.

The media reported that eight Syrian servicemen were killed, and dozens more were injured.

The news source reported that the Turkish Army attacked the Syrian military near the border villages, which the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-Syrian alliance, handed over to Assad’s government.

Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu stated that Ankara would attack the US-supported Kurdish People’s Self-Defense Forces in the area of the Syrian city of Manbij if they remained in the city.

Ankara also stated that Turkey will conclude military operations in Syria only after the capture of Manbij.
