BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham has officially withdrawn from the strategic town of Ariha in the Idlib Governorate, today, after an agreement was put in place with Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

According to the terms of the agreement, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham will withdraw from the town in order to avoid any potential clashes with Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, as many civilians still remain inside of Ariha.

Ariha is a strategic town that is located along the Idlib-Hama Highway; its proximity to the provincial capital also makes it a top priority for any military.

Despite the successful agreement in Ariha, clashes between Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the newly formed Jabhat Tahrir Souriya (Ahrar Al-Sham/Nouriddeen Al-Zinki alliance) group did take place at the towns of Tarmala and Aurum Al-Joz.

These clashes resulted in Jabhat Tahrir Souriya taking full control of the aforementioned towns in the Idlib Governorate.

Below is footage of Jabhat Tahrir Souriya kicking HTS out of these towns:

Jabhat Tahrir Souriya also took control of the northern Hama towns of Hawsh Al-Qasabiyah and Baarbo after a short battle with HTS.
