BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – On Monday, one of the largest factions within Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) announced it would not fight for the Al-Qaeda affiliated group before infighting between rival jihadist groups was halted indefinitely.

The Al-Tamkeen Brigade, once the backbone of Ahrar Al-Sham but now an integral part of HTS, said it in an online bulletin that rival groups should put their differences aside and unite against a common enemy, namely the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

It is not yet known how the HTS leadership will respond to the Al-Tamkeen Brigade’s statement.

HTS and Ahrar Al-Sham have been at odds with one another for some time in the Idlib governorate, thereby causing a surge in the number of arrests and car bombs across the northwestern province. HTS has also clashed repeatedly with Jaish Al-Islam in the East Ghouta.

The Al-Tamkeen Brigade left Ahrar Al-Sham last since and since joined HTS when a coalition of jihadist groups merged in January, 2017.

Though I am totally against islamists and as far as I am concerned they can shoot all Jihadists, just from a tactical point of view those who are against infighting are right.

I suspect islamists will remain islamists, whether inside of HTS or outside of HTS. They will just seek and find another group of subhumans.

The s**t is it’ll make things more complicated to go after them. Let’s hope we’ll be able to seize serious documentation about all those in. They’re not subhumans, unfortunately, or they wouldn’t be so dangerous but the most dangerous one are those that are pulling the strings in the shadows, that have poured hundreds of billions petrodollars on the embers to fuel all this s**t. Once the money flow from such oil-rich nasty sheikhs cut, the roaches will self collapse like flushing the toilets of history. Actually, there are some well known VIPs implied. Unfortunately, I’m not in a position… Read more »
