It started to become readily apparent to Colonel Leclerc that the Turks had built up their forces in Iksenderun and hope to take the town was rapidly diminishing. Now the CEF's best bet to capture Iksenderun would be to fall back to Antioch and await reenforcements, they had managed to advance almost 150 miles from Aleppo to Iksenderun, now it was time to fall back a little and hammer the Turks with Artillery. Rumor had it that the 3e Armee and the 13e DBLE would be sent to provide reenforcements.
