DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:10 P.M.) – After three days of intense infighting, Ahrar Al-Sham and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS/Al-Qaeda) finally agreed to stop all hostilities on Friday afternoon.

Both jihadist groups, known to be the two largest opposition fighting forces in Syria, released official statements online reaffirming their commitment to restore stability across Idlib.

Nevertheless, the three-day war resulted in 60 deaths for militants from both groups while dozens of civilians were caught in the crossfire too. Around 100 fighters were either injured or arrested amid the infighting while several towns changed hands in the process.

With peace suddenly prevailing, both sides agreed to release all prisoners taken. However, Ahrar Al-Sham was forced to relinquish control of the Bab Al-Hawah border crossing which will be managed by a civil council instead.

Although inter-rebel fighting may erupt again and has done so historically, the two rival groups are now able to refocus their attention on battling the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

It’s just so funny that they keep fighting each other rather than fight the SAA ,there basically doing the SAA job it’s mad plus they are killing innocent people everyday I bet most people just want a normal life instead of these jihady groups fighting each other or fighting the SAA …. Syria is just mad around 250 different groups or country’s involved pure madness !!!!!
