Syria: Hundreds of Ahrar Terrorists Retreat from Idlib towards Aleppo Province
The Arabic-Language Anab al-Baladi news network reported that 400 members of Ahrar al-Sham have thus far arrived in the border town of Jarabulus in Northeastern Aleppo after retreating from their positions in Idlib.
In the meantime, Spokesman for Ahrar al-Sham Omar al-Khatab pointed to the arrival of a number of Ahrar militants in Jarabulus and said that more militants will be relocated to al-Ghab plain and Jabal al-Zaviyeh regions in Hama province.
Reports said the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) has managed to impose control over most border regions with Turkey from Atmah to Bab al-Hawa border passage, Harm and from Salqin to Khirbet al-Jowz passageway and al-Za’einiyeh region.
Relevant reports said on Monday that Al-Nusra Front ultimately pushed Ahrar al-Sham back from Idlib city after weeks of bloody clashes in Northwestern Syria.
The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news network quoted informed sources affiliated to the terrorist groups as saying that Tahrir al-Sham gained full control over Idlib city and has driven the entire members of Ahrar al-Sham out of the city.
The network added that regardless of the ceasefire, fierce clashes between Al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham are underway to take control of passageways and command centers.
In the meantime, media activists said that Al-Nusra’s superiority over Ahrar al-Sham in Idlib seems to be against its interests because it has increased the possibility of imminent military operations against them by Damascus, Moscow and even Ankara.
