Syria: Terrorist Groups Battling over Western Aleppo Towns


 Syria’s Tahrir Front, formed after the merger of Ahrar al-Sham and Nouralddeen al-Zinki terrorist groups, and Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) continued to exchange heavy fire in Western Aleppo for the second day in a row on Friday.

According to pro-opposition activists, the Syrian Tahrir Front launched an attack on Tahrir Al-Sham Hay’at’s positions in Kafr Naha in Western Aleppo.

The attack resulted in a series of fierce clashes between the terrorist groups, but with no change in the ground situation.

The two terrorist groups also clashed near the town of Dar al-Izzah, with Syria’s Tahrir Front also leading the attack against Tahrir Al-Sham Hay’at.

Earlier reports said that at least 40 terrorists were killed and several more were wounded in fierce cashes between two main groups in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib.

Syria’s Tahrir Front stormed the positions of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at and captured the towns of al-Naqir, Abedin, Harash al-Habit and al-Qasabiyah and several villages in Jabal al-Zaviyeh and Jabal Shahshahbo regions.

In the meantime, Tahrir al-Sham drove the rival terrorist group out of the towns of Batbo and Kafr Naseh in Western Aleppo and kept its gunmen on alert near the towns of Dar al-Izzah, Khan al-Asal and Tadil to launch attack on the positions of Syria’s Tahrir Front.

Field sources said that at least 40 militants from both warring sides, including Commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at Abu Moslem Souran, were killed and several more were wounded in the infighting.
