The United States-led Coalition against the Islamic State (IS) on Thursday confirmed the start of joint Turkish-American patrols near Manbij.

Although Ankara considers the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) an extension of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), Turkey's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally the United States continues to support the Kurdish fighters in the fight against the Islamic State (ISIS).

Turkey has accused the USA -back Kurdish forces of containing elements of the YPG, a Kurdish terrorist group, a charge the Pentagon has repeatedly said is not accurate.

"We also call the global community to condemn the Turkish provocations in the safe areas in Syria, and we demand our partners in the worldwide Coalition to show a clear attitude and stop Turkey from launching attacks on the region", it added.

As a result of the road map, the Manbij Military Council announced in July that all Kurdish militia who were associated with YPG had left.

"The terror group is digging trenches in Manbij as they have done in Afrin, despite promises made by the United States about PKK/PYD/YPG's withdrawal from Manbij", Akar told lawmakers in a planning and budget committee meeting.

"Ankara thinks that the terror groups on the eastern part of the Euphrates are undermining Syria's unitary structure and threatening Turkey's territorial integrity", he told Arab News.
