BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Turkish Army has allegedly abandoned their observation posts in northwestern Hama, the Arabic-language version of the Sputnik News Agency reported.
According to the report, the Turkish Army removed its posts in the Jabal Shashabo area after an attack by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) injured at least four soldiers on Saturday.
The Turkish military confirmed that four of their military personnel were wounded, adding that their rescue choppers transported the soldiers to safety from the northwestern countryside of Hama.
The Sputnik report added that the Turkish Army helicopter also evacuated their remaining forces from the area.
Neither the Turkish Army nor the rebel forces have corroborated these claims this afternoon
However, if true, this would likely pave the way for the Syrian Arab Army to push into the Qal’at Al-Madiq area and the Al-Ghaab Plain.
