SCRIPT
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) entered Qasr Yalda northwest of the town of Tal Tamr on Saturday, a location formerly used by the United States military as an operating base in the region.
Footage shows SAA soldiers patrolling the former US compound as well as the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic hoisted above the base.
The advance of the SAA follows an agreement with Kurdish groups to help defend the region against Turkey's military offensive dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring,' which was announced on October 9 with the stated aim of establishing a 'safe zone' in north eastern Syria.
Turkey announced a 120-hour ceasefire on October 17 to allow Kurdish forces to leave the area, after a round of talks between US Vice President Mike Pence and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
