Syria: Turkey-Backed Terrorists Sent to Western Aleppo to Face Rival Terrorists
Over 400 militants of the Free Syrian Army affiliated to the Turkish army were sent to the town of Dar al-Izzah in Western Aleppo in two convoys.
The dispatched troops are to face Tahrir al-Sham that intended to capture Dar al-Izzah.
A seven-day long ceasefire has been declared between Tahrir al-Sham and Syria’s Tahrir Front in Aleppo and Idlib provinces after months of bloody clashes.
In a relevant development on Thursday a militant group affiliated to Syria’s Tahrir Front stormed the positions of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at rival terrorist group in Western Aleppo.
Sources reported that gunmen of Nouralddeen al-Zinki, affiliated to Syria’s Tahrir Front, launched a heavy assault on Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at near the town of Dar al-Izzah and managed to capture Basraton settlement and its surrounding areas after Tahrir Al-Sham withdrew further West of Dar al-Izzah.
Pro-Zinki activists also claimed that at least five militants from Tahrir Al-Sham were killed during the advance.
Al-Zinki’s assault comes just days after Tahrir Al-Sham killed several members of Syria’s Tahrir Front in Eastern Aleppo.
