DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4: 15 P.M.) – A fortnight after the two main jihadi groups controlling the southwestern Syrian province of Idlib have signed a ceasefire, an all-out infighting is looming following today’s showdown.

Local activists reported that Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham militants stationed at a checkpoint south of Saraqib have intercepted a convoy of four trucks for Faylah al-Sham.

HTS militants seized the vehicles which were laden with weapons and ammunitions, and detained Abu Adas; Faylaq’s commander who was leading the convoy.

In response, Faylaq al-Sham gave THS a time limit until midnight to release the convoy and the commander before acting accordingly.

The showdown comes two weeks after HTS and Ahrar al-Sham (a close ally to Faylaq) signed a ceasefire following fierce clashes in north Idlib which killed up to 50 militants from all sides.

Typo, Idlib is in the North-Western Syria. In between Latakia and Aleppo provinces.

When the first time I saw this pic I thought wow what a picture it must win some awards, but today I noticed some guy in the back ground in military fatigues holding a gun to each of the two men’s heads and realized it’s a setup. They went one step too many and ruined an award winning picture.

This is the most interesting feature of jihad in history : once contained, they go after each other as long as there is not one having subdued all others.
The thing to do is to manage the situation in order none becomes dominant and they’ll end suppressing each others 😀
