BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – Since the beginning of March, renewed infighting between rival jihadist militias Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (better known by its former name, Al-Nusra Front) and Jabhat Tahrir Souriya has seen both sides inflict major military losses on one another.

According to Syrian war monitor sources, six weeks of rebel clashes across various towns and villages of Idlib and Aleppo provinces (mostly Aleppo) has now seen about 400 insurgent fighters killed in action.

In addition to this, dozens of military vehicles – mostly technicals but also including main battle tanks and armored personnel carriers – have been destroyed.

These numbers do not include two previous weeks of infighting between Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham and Jabhat Tahrir Souriya during February which saw the death of at least 200 militants.

The overall number of wounded can only be guessed at for now. In any case it likely exceeds one thousand fighters.

Keep dropping them the war surplus materials confiscated in Mayadeen & Alleppo from ISIS and air drop them equally between these two groups and sit back and enjoy watch them waste each other. These dumb asses will never come together and will keep chanting God is Great 1000 times and keep slaughtering each other by making nice videos and upload them. Looks like both are imposing Sharia… Read more »
