Civil Council of Syria’s Manbij imposes curfew

MANBIJ, Syria (North Press) – Last night, the Civil Administration of Manbij, north Syria, imposed a 48-hour curfew in the city following the killing of a young man by the Syrian government forces.

Since morning, the city has been witnessing a calm, except for the northern villages that are subjected to frequent bombing by the Turkish-backed armed opposition groups.  

The Military Council posted on its official Facebook that a young man was killed and three others were wounded by the Syrian government forces during the passage of one of the latter’s vehicles in the village of al-Hadhoud, 6 km northeast of Manbij.

The council demanded the residents of Manbij and its countryside “not to be dragged behind the makers of sedition and those who tamper with the security and stability of the region, and to bear their responsibility towards the region’s security and safety.”
