Tahrir Al-Sham Drives Rival Terrorists from More Positions in Northwestern Syria

Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) stormed the positions of a rival terrorist group in Northwestern Syria and managed to capture their bases on Sunday.

Tahrir al-Sham launched a heavy offensive against Kata’eb Ansra al-Sham in Jabal al-Turkmen in Northern Lattakia, pushing the latter back from a number of strongholds and bases.

The clashes came after Ansar al-Sham cut relations with Tahrir al-Sham.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on Saturday that Tahrir al-Sham, Turkistani Islamic Party, Horas al-Deen, Ansar al-Deen and other terrorist groups that are included in the Sochi Agreement, endorsed by Russia and Turkey, did not withdraw fighters and weapons from the zone that stretches from Northeastern Lattakia to Northwestern Aleppo.

In the meantime, the Arabic-language website of Sputnik reported that Tahrir al-Sham and Turkistani Islamic Party launched missile attacks on army positions in Northeastern Lattakia and also the army’s strongholds in a region near Idlib province on Thursday.

It further said that the army units detected terrorists’ positions for launching Grade missiles in Qala al-Maziq in Jabal al-Zaviyeh and in the town of Bedama in Lattakia province that are controlled by Tahrir al-Sham.

It went on to say that the terrorists continued reinvigoration of positions on a daily basis to intensify provocative measures in the region.
