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.
