Previously, there were at least 50 Turkish military personnel, armored vehicles and communications equipment, however, according to local sources, for unknown reasons, a severe fire started on the base, and later the evacuated Turkish military were noticed.
It should be noted that the cause of the destruction of the Turkish military base is not explosions or attacks, but a fire occurring at the base.
For that reason media stated that the base was burned by the Turkish military themselves, who decided to transfer their forces to other areas.
“The Turkish army began a retreat from positions in Syria, which it occupied near the settlement of Tel Tamr in the northern province of Hasek”. This was reported by North Press on Twitter.
Reasons for relocation are not indicated. According to the agency, the Turkish army is also leaving the settlements of Shabliya, Al-Manajir and Es-Saud in northern Syria – exactly where the operation “Source of Peace” took place.
North Press emphasizes that Turkey burns all its positions before leaving them.
A number of sources suggested that the reason for the possible evacuation of the Turkish military was the intention to launch a military operation not only in the northwestern part of Syria, but also in the northern part of the Arab Republic, in connection with which it was decided to remove the positions of the Turkish army in order to secure military personnel from retaliatory strikes.
However at the same time, there is evidence that, in reality, the reason for the destruction of the Turkish base was an attack on it by Kurdish military forces.
BulgarianMilitary.com cannot confirms the truth of information that an attack of Syrian Kurds is the main reason for destroyed military base.
