Wave of Infighting Erupts among Terrorist Groups in Northwestern Syria
The sources said that the Al-Nusra stormed the command centers of other rival groups in the town of Ma’arat al-Nu’aman and closed the terrorist groups’ headquarters in the town.
The Al-Nusra had given 72 hours to the terrorist groups in Ma’arat al-Nu’aman to leave their command centers and headquarters, the sources said.
They added that the Al-Nusra arrested a number of rival terrorists, including Deputy Interious Minister of Terrorist Groups Ahmad Qassoum in their assault .
A field source said in October that the Southern Idlib was the scene of fierce clashes between Ahrar al-Sham and Jund al-Aqsa, adding that scores of militants from both sides were killed or wounded in the clashes.
“Ahrar al-Sham fighters arrested a number of Jund al-Aqsa near Saraqib and stormed the house of Ali al-Issa, one of the commanders of Ahrar al-Sham that resulted in the escalation of fighting between the rival terrorist groups,” the sources said.
“In Khan Sheikhoun, Jund al-Aqsa captured Ahrar al-Sham positions and then the town,” the sources added.
In the meantime, Syrian fighter jets bombed heavily a base of the terrorists in the Eastern side of al-Dana, leaving scores of militants dead.
