BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have reportedly withdrawn from the strategic border city of Ras Al-‘Ayn after ten days of battle.

According to several reports from the area, the Syrian Democratic Forces have withdrawn their troops south of Ras Al-‘Ayn after being nearly encircled around this city in northwestern Al-Hasakah.

The Syrian Democratic Forces managed to fend off the Turkish military and their allied militants for several days, despite the absence of air defense weapons and other heavy equipment needed to fight off the invasion.

However, it should be noted that despite these claims, the Syrian Democratic Forces have not made any official announcements to corroborate these claims.

If the SDF did indeed withdraw from Ras Al-‘Ayn, this means the Turkish-backed militants will have captured their second major border city in the last week.
