BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – A source from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) told Al-Masdar News on Tuesday morning that the militants have begun withdrawing from the city of Khan Sheikhoun and several towns in northern Hama.

According to the source, the militants have begun withdrawing from Khan Sheikhoun, Al-Latamnah, Kafr Zita, Morek, Latmeen, and several other areas.

The source added that the Syrian Arab Army has not entered any of these towns, nor is there an agreement for such a withdrawal.

This latest report comes just a day after the jihadist rebels lost a great deal of territory to the Syrian Arab Army at the northern axis of Khan Sheikhoun.

With the Turkish Army’s decision to not to enter Khan Sheikhoun, the militants are only left with two choices: stay and face a potential siege or withdraw and secure others areas in northern Syria.

As it appears by the latest maps the SAA have at minimum fire control and maybe partial physical control of the main road north anyone leaving would have to pass through this SAA control. No doubt there are a few minor roads to the east but I think the distance between the SAA west and east pincers is less than 10kms so air control is easily possible. For those running it is a valuable lesson they can teach their comrades they will join with in the north.

The problem wit these roads east could be that they are not fit to transport all this heavy equipment. But anyway this part of the war is nearly over and they have lost.
