Early on February 6, pro-government forces seized the area of Duwayr, cutting off the M5 highway north of Saraqib. Thus, the road through Saramin remained the only way to flee for militants remaining in the town. However, it is under the fire control by the Syrian Army.
Earlier, the army’s Tiger Forces captured the eastern entrance to Saraqib. According to local sources, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other al-Qaeda freedom fighters started fleeing the town.
The Turkish Army sticked several observation post right in the area, but they apparently did not help.
Some sources report that Saraqib is already empty and the Syrian Army is right now taking control of the town. Nonetheless, these reports remain unconfirmed.
