BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham” (formerly Al-Nusra Front) announced the formation of a new rebel force that will merge their organization with other rebel factions in Syria.

Five rebel factions, including Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham, agreed to disband and form a new group that will be called “Hey’sah Tahrir Al-Sham” (Levant Liberation Body).

The disbanded rebel factions include Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Liwaa Al-Haq, Liwaa Ansar Al-Deen, and Jaysh Al-Sunnah; these groups originally participated in several battles in northern Syria before disbanding this weekend.

The leader of this new jihadist organization will be “Abu Jaber Hashem Al-Sheikh,” the statement added.

It’s important to note that Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki was once supplied with U.S. manufactured anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM) before being declared “non-moderates” by the U.S. regime.

So all of those groups are UN proscribed terrorist as they have joined with Al Nusra now and can be targeted at will by the SAA etc and even by the US coalition of illegal military groups operating in Syria IF President Trump so desires.

Will Turkey risk continuing to arm the the terrorists I wonder as her military has been shown to be a paper tiger and with her 450 F16’s they struggle to operate a squadron over Al Bab.

The much vaunted Turkish Leopard tanks only serve to provide an entertaining firework display 🙂

=> The much vaunted Turkish Leopard tanks => were refurbished in 1994 or so – second hand EC surplus, I am sorry for the Turk conscripts. The “Friends of Syria” supplied TOW can not only blow up SAA T72 and earlier. They can also torch their own older tanks. They forgot to anticipate that.

Turkey is FAR to have 450 F-16s!!!!!! Only 236 : 149 F-16C and 87 F-16D (dual seat), well, add 1 F-16C reserved to air-shows. They still have 34 F-4E that have been upgraded and run on the dismantled Phantoms from the Luftwaffe spare parts (as Iranian F-4s run on the former Israeli F-4 that have been dismantled and sold to them as spare parts). Now, THK has a bit shortage in number of pilots as now they’re under 1 per plane, thanks to Erdogan’s purges, nevertheless, their problem ain’t not so to struggle to gather one squadron, it’s just that… Read more »

Wrong ,they are NOW being targeted by the US coalition, that’s why they “oficialy” joined al-Nosra, when they lost Aleppo they became the lame ducks ; the failing agents to eliminate. USA lost the Syrian war so they are now eliminating the losers on the ground… after all they are terrorists !

This will make the infighting last more time 😉
Al Nusra was losing territory in the last few days and this statement will help the government even more …. !!!!
No wonder why government had done so much aggrements to move terrorists to Idlib instead of annihilation !! They put the garbage in Idlib and let them kill each others and Assad troops will watch them with cup of “Matte” 😉 !!
