BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has officially entered the city of Kobani (var. ‘Ayn Al-‘Arab) this evening after securing a deal with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) earlier in the week.

Following the U.S. withdrawal, the Syrian Army swiftly move in and began deploying their troops across the city, as several residents took to the streets to witness this historic moment.
