Syria: Militant Coalition Collapsing Due to Widening Differences
Jeish al-Fath, a coalition of different terrorist groups in Syria, is on the verge of collapse as a result of emergence of fierce clashes between its main members, the Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham.
Fierce clashes have risen between the Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham terrorist groups in recent days.
Al-Nusra Front is backed by Turkey and Qatar to carry on with terrorist activities in the Northern parts of Syria while Ahrar al-Sham is supported by Saudi Arabia.
The formation of Jeish al-Fath (Army of Conquest) was meant to mark an alliance among Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Military analysts had anticipated the collapse of Jeish al-Fath since the beginning of its formation.
The analysts’ forecast came true after the Al-Nusra Front attacked Ahrar al-Sham’s positions in the village of al-Bareh in Northern Aleppo on Friday.
Meantime, the Syrian warplanes killed over 40 Jeish al-Fath senior commanders by pounding their positions in Idlib province in Northwestern Syria.
Notorious terrorist, Abu Ahmed Derwish, has reportedly been among the death toll of the Army’s Friday airstrike in Idlib.
The Jeish al-Fath commanders were killed while they had gathered for a coordination meeting.
Jeish al-Fath is a military alliance of the terrorist groups that was formed on March 24. Jeish al-Fath comprises of several Takfiri and non-Takfiri terrorist groups and one of the main reasons for the rise of clashes among Jeish al-Fath subgroups is their ideological differences.
There are many factions, including Ahrar al-Sham and al-Nusra, in Jeish al-Fath that do not agree politically, but have banded together for territorial gains.
