Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and US President Donald Trump discussed Manbij and Idlib in Rojava (northern Syria) in a call on Thursday, the Turkish presidential office said.

Turkish and US forces began joint patrols on Thursday in the Manbij region, a source of friction in recent years after Kurdish forces YPG took part of the area in a US-backed offensive to drive out Islamic State in 2016.
