For the second time in ten days, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has blocked the U.S. military’s troops from bypassing their checkpoints in northern Syria.
According to a military report from Aleppo, a U.S. military convoy was attempting to bypass a Syrian Army checkpoint south of Manbij. The U.S. military convoy was forced to turn around and go back to where they came from.
It appears that the U.S. special forces had taken a wrong turn near Manbij, which resulted in their troops reaching a Syrian Army checkpoint at the town of Tal Aswad in northern Aleppo.
