Jund Al-Aqsa Terrorists Leaving Idlib for Raqqa

Jund Al-Aqsa Terrorists Leaving Idlib for Raqqa

 

Jund al-Aqsa terrorist group – an ally of Ahrar al-Sham – is reportedly withdrawing its forces from Idlib and sending them to Raqqa after an agreement with the newly-formed Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board).

The Kurdish-language Hawar news quoted informed sources as saying that Jund al-Aqsa whose forces were deployed in Idlib has started relocating its forces to Raqqa along with their weapons and families via al-Khanasser road after establishing close ties with ISIL.

Noting that the retreat will last until Monday, the sources underlined that Jund al-Aqsa has already sent its heavy weapons and armored vehicles to Raqqa before leaving Idlib.

Jund al-Aqsa is an ally of Ahrar al-Sham, but after the recent clashes with Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at that is mainly comprised of al-Nusra Front terrorists it reinvigorated its old ties with ISIL once again to relocated troops to Raqqa.

Jund al-Aqsa’s top commander visited Raqqa last week in preparation for the relocation plan.

Late in January, al-Nusra Front and several militant groups declared forming a new coalition under the name of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at to narrow down widening rifts amongst their commanders and members.

The Al-Nusra Front, Nouralddeen al-Zinki Movement, Jeish al-Sonah, Jabhat Ansaraldeen and Liwa al-Haq announced that they would act under a united coalition named the Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at.

The five merged terrorist groups act under the command of Abu Jaber Hashem al-Sheikh, who was one of the commanders of Ahrar al-Sham. The new coalition led by al-Sheikh is now fighting against Ahrar al-Sham, a rival terrorist group operating mainly in Northwestern Syria.

Al-Sheikh resigned from his post in Ahrar al-Sham after he was appointed as the commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at.

A number of Ahrar al-Sham’s commanders, including the groups’ spokesman Abu Yusuf al-Mohajer, Hesam Salameh and Abu al-Fatah al-Farqali Mesri also joined the new coalition.

Terrorist groups’ websites claimed that Al-Nusra Commander Abu Mohammad al-Joulani will be the top commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at.

Ahrar al-Sham rejected its affiliation to the new coalition, but websites close to the terrorist groups have disclosed that Ahrar al-Sham, Faylaq al-Sham, Jeish al-Izzah, Turkistani party and Liwa al-Tamkin will soon start a new front called Tahrir al-Syria Front.

Nusra terrorists have been attacking positions of other terrorist rivals across Northwestern Syria.
