Also, reports in Northern Idlib said that Tahrir al-Sham militants have gained control of the towns of Atmah and Salah as well as the villages of Aqirabat, Deir Hissan, Qah and Kafr Lousin and Kafr Lousin corridor in the region after heavy clashes with Syria’s Tahrir Front.
Sources affiliated to Tahrir al-Sham reported that they have lost 783 militants during the recent clashes in Aleppo, Idlib and Hama provinces, and sustained 1,329 of injuries.
The Syrian army has also launched several military operations in the three provinces against Tahrir al-Sham and other terrorist groups.
Field sources said on Wednesday that Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at has embarked on pulling its gunmen back form more positions in Idlib and Hama provinces after fierce clashes with rival terrorists from Syria’s Tahrir Front.
The sources said that Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at retreated form Shikh Mustafa, Kafr Sanjeh, al-Rakaya, Madhaya, al-Ameriyeh, Mowaqa, Kafr Ein, Heish, Tahtaya, Khan Sheikhoun, Morek, Morek passageway, Kafr Zita and al-Tamanna regions after suffering heavy defeats in tough battles with Syria’s Tahrir Front in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib.
The sources further said that Syria’s Tahrir Front pushed Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at back from Taftnaz airport and Kafr Lusin passageway in Northern Idlib at the border with Turkey as well as the two villages of Qah and Atmah.
Field sources also reported on Wednesday that the Al-Nusra Front has pulled its gunmen from the entire positions in Western Aleppo amid continued clashes with the newly-formed rival terrorist group of Syria’s Tahrir Front in Aleppo and Idlib.
The sources said that the Al-Nusra (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) has retreated from Sheikh Ali, Kafr Halab, Kafr Karmin, al-Tawama, al-Sahara and Kafr Naha regions after recent clashes with Syria’s Tahrir Front in Western Aleppo.
In the meantime, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at has retreated completely from its positions in Western Aleppo and moved towards Idlib, while Southern Aleppo is also empty of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at’s presence.
