ALEPPO (Syria) (Sputnik) - The Syrian army established itself on the territories along the western border of the Syrian region of Manbij, Aleppo province, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

According to the correspondent, Syrian flags have been raised in settlements situated on the contact line with Turkey-aligned Euphrates Shield armed groups.

"The army is establishing itself in the direction of the district's northern border. Thus, the Syrian army should prevent the Euphrates Shield forces' advance toward Manbij", the source said.
