The jihadist-held Idlib province has descended into further chaos as the inter-jihadist war that has waged across the area intensifies.

Clashes have erupted between the terrorist groups of Ahrar Al-Sham and Tahrir Al-Sham in Saraqib, Idlib countryside after one of Ahrar Al-Sham regiments announced they defected and joined Tahrir Al-Sham.

The faction that defected played a crucial role in Ahrar al-Sham as they manufactured weapons.

Another fanction of Ahrar Al-Sham tried to prevent this regiment from taking any weapons or ammunition with them during the defection. This led to clashes between the two rival factions, as well as other Tahrir Al-Sham fighters in the area.

So far there have been only reports of a couple of injuries and each side arrested some of the opposing group members. Militants in Idlib are known to downplay the severity of the infighting because of the embarrassment that a supposed liberated area of Syria has descended into chaos.
