According to a military report from the provincial capital of Aleppo, a group of Tiger Forces were redeployed to the town of Al-Arimeh, which is located at the western outskirts of Manbij.
In addition to the reinforcements from the Tiger Forces, the Syrian military also sent some of their intelligence troops to the outskirts of Manbij, as they continue to amass their forces west of the city.
