BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has taken over a U.S. military base in the Al-Hasakah Governorate after the latter withdrew from the area recently.

According to a military report, the Syrian Army took over the Qasr Yalda area in the northwestern part of the Tal Tamr District after receiving clearance from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The report said upon entering the Qasr Yalda, the Syrian Army also took control of the former U.S. military base that was setup shortly after the American troops arrived in the area.

Since Friday, the Syrian Arab Army has entered several villages and towns in the Tal Tamr District, putting themselves within sight of the strategic border city of Ras Al-‘Ayn in northwestern Al-Hasakah.

On Saturday afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army found themselves under attack in the Tal Tamr District when a group of Turkish-backed militants attempted to advance from the southeastern part of Ras Al-‘Ayn.

The Syrian Arab Army was able to foil the militant attack after a short battle outside the small town of Ahras.

Saturday’s attack by the militant forces marked the first time that they have attempted to advance into an area controlled by the Syrian Arab Army.
