The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Syrian National Defense Forces (NDF) have officially taken control of an observatory belonging to the Turkish Armed Forces in Idlib province.
According to the National Defense Forces (NDF), their troops and the Syrian Arab Army occupied the Sharman observatory, which has been used by the Turkish armed forces since early 2020.
NDF posted photos from the observatory after their troops moved in and took full control of the area.
The arrival of the NDF and SAA at the observatory came just days after the Turkish army removed its fortifications from the base and withdrew its forces from the area.
As of October 2020, the Turkish Armed Forces have withdrawn from several observatories besieged by the Syrian Arab Army and the National Defense Forces in northwestern Syria.
