Syria: Tahrir Al-Sham Sends Military Equipment to Aleppo Following Clashes with Rival Terrorists
Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) forwarded more fighters and military hardware to Western Aleppo on Sunday after recent tensions with the National Liberation Front rival terrorists.
Tahrir al-Sham dispatched a large number of gunmen and a large volume of military equipment to a region between the small towns of al-Jineh and Abin Sam’an near the town of al-Artab in Western Aleppo.
Tahrir al-Sham’s moves came after intensifying tensions with the National Liberation Front in Western Aleppo that closed a main road between Tamanin and Dar al-Izzah towns.
In the meantime, a number of gunmen of Tahrir al-Sham and the National Liberation Front were killed or wounded in heavy fighting between them near Dar al-Izzah.
Last week, the Kurdish-language Hawar news quoted Aladdin al-Khaled, the head of Syria’s al-Mostaqbal Party in al-Shahba region, as reporting that Ankara was transferring Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at from Idlib to Afrin under the Sochi agreement on Idlib in an effort to rescue them.
It further said that a number of Tahrir al-Sham terrorists entered the village of Deir Balout in Jandaris region in Afrin under the Turkish intelligence forces’ monitoring.
In the meantime, local sources in Afrin reported that the Turkish army and its allied militants forced civilians to leave their residential units in the villages of Kokan Foqani, Kokan Tahtani and Dar Karah in Mobata region to settle family members of Idlib terrorists.
Also, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that the Ankara-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) expelled almost 200 family members of Eastern Ghouta terrorists from a region in Afrin and moved them towards Idlib to pave the ground for sheltering the FSA members in Afrin.
