Clashes Escalating among Terrorists in Idlib
The sources said that the most bloody clashes are between Fatah al-Sham and Ahrar al-Sham, adding that Ahrar members accused Fatah al-Sham of assassinating their three commanders in the town of Talmans.
The sources added that widening gaps and harsh disputes between the commanders of Ahrar al-Sham and Fatah al-Sham in Idlib ushered in armed clashes between the two fronts.
“Ahrar al-Sham and Fatah al-Sham assassinate members and commanders of each other in covert operations and without accepting the responsibility, and in a number of more cases they open fire at each other in the public and without any excuse,” they continued.
The clashes have inflicted tens of casualties on both Ahrar al-Sham and Fatah al-Sham.
Local sources said on Sunday that infighting among rival terrorists increased in Idlib province since the liberation of Aleppo city by the Syrian Army, adding a commander of Fatah al-Sham Front was also killed in a bomb attack as a result of widening gaps in terrorist front.
The sources said that after the army capture of Eastern Aleppo, infighting between Fatah al-Sham and other terrorist groups had been on the rise in the recent weeks.

Fatah al-Sham seized 25 members of other terrorist groups in the town of Khan al-Sabal in Southern Idlib, turning the town into a battlefield on Saturday.
In the meantime, a number of militants and some of the members of Islamic Battalions, inducing Ajnad al-Qoqaz (soldiers of Caucasus) Battalion were kidnapped by unknown assailants in the Southern and Northern countryside of Idlib.
Informed sources also said that Commander of the Military Vehicles of Fatah al-Sham in Idlib countryside known as Abu Yusuf al-Ansari was killed in explosion of his vehicle by a bomb.
