Turkey Withdraws From Military Outpost in Syria Surrounded by the Syrian Army

Turkey has evacuated an observation station in Syria’s northwestern Hama province that had been encircled by Syrian government forces.

The outpost in Morek had been Turkey’s largest in the province, which is now under the control of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Assad’s troops encircled it last year after an offensive on the province of Idlib, which is the last opposition stronghold in the country.

“After midnight Turkish forces began to evacuate Morek, and this morning a large convoy left” the area, an Ankara-backed Syrian rebel commander told AFP.

He said the troops would be redeployed to Turkish outposts in Idlib.
