Turkey's state-run news agency Tuesday said the United States is setting up two military bases and has increased its presence in the Manbij region of northern Syria, which President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly threatened to attack.The Anadolu news agency gave precise locations of the bases, with tensions between Ankara and Washington still high over Turkey's operation against Kurdish militia in northern Syria.In July 2017 it published an article giving details on US bases in Syria with information on troop numbers and aircraft.On Friday, Anadolu also published a story saying that 100 French special forces soldiers were deployed at five bases in YPG-controlled areas in Syria.
