Syria: Turkey-Backed Terrorists Sent to Western Aleppo to Face Rival Terrorists

Hundreds of Ankara-backed militants were dispatched to Western Aleppo on Sunday to confront Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) amid a temporary ceasefire among militants in Northern Syria.

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.
