BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham have withdrawn from another city in the Idlib Governorate this week after an agreement was put in place to avoid infighting with other factions.

According to pro-opposition activists in Idlib, the agreement called for Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham to withdraw from Khan Sheikhoun and hand the city back to the locals.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s withdrawal from Khan Sheikhoun, today, marks the second time in five days that the jihadist group has withdrawn from a major city in the Idlib Governorate.

The first major city that HTS withdrew from was Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, which is located just north of Khan Sheikhoun.

In addition to their withdrawal from Khan Sheikhoun, pro-opposition pages are reporting that HTS has also agreed to leave the town of Saraqib near the Aleppo provincial border; this has not been confirmed.
