Al-Nusra has gathered almost 3,000 of its fighters in Western Aleppo to attack Nouralddeen al-Zinki’s positions from three directions.

Reports said on Tuesday that the Nouralddeen al-Zinki members and other terrorists of Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) resumed clashes after a daylong halt in hostilities in the region.

Al-Zinki and Al-Nusra exchanged heavy fire near the 111th regiment base, the small town of Dar al-Izzah, the village of Taqad, in a region near the villages of Ajel, Tadil and Oweijel and the small towns of Kafr Naha and al-Abzqamou in Western Aleppo.

Meanwhile, Al-Nusra dispatched a large number of forces and military hardware, including tanks and vehicles to the battlefields in Western Aleppo and Northern Idlib to face al-Zinki fighters.
