BEIRUT, LEBANON (01:28 A.M.) – Late on Tuesday evening, two rival jihadist groups in Idlib signed a ceasefire deal to end the in-fighting between them.

Ahrar Al-Sham and Tahrir Al-Sham reached a ceasefire deal which ended the fighting between each other in northern Idlib countryside, concentrated mostly around Al-Mastouma.

The inter-jihadist war in Idlib became a source of criticism towards the supposed success of “the revolution” in Idlib province, which has mostly just seen jihadists flock into the area and impose puritanical interpretations of Islamic law among the people.

The new terms of the ceasefire has called for each sides to end and pull all armed checkpoints that were established after the fighting began, as well as the release of all prisoners captured by each side.

Tahrar Al-Sham will pull and retreat from the Al-Mastouma military base area and return all weapons and ammunition captured by them back to Ahrar Al-Sham.

A new council will also be established by both sides so that they can diplomatically resolve issues rather than resort to fighting.

Part of the terms also included that activists and media teams of both respective groups to stop denouncing and/or harass each other.

Finally, both groups announced cooperation so that they can coordinate a renewed battle against the Syrian Army in Aleppo province.

That is what I think also. Truce only extends the life time of the terrorist holdouts.

I’m not sure if this is over yet- I heard that Ahrar al Sham’s leader insulted Julani’s goat. Hayat Tahrir al Sham must now defend their honor by eliminating Ahrar al Sham 😉

En esto tiene que ver Turquía, HTS quiere desligarse de Al-qaeda pero en fondo es mentira, sigue siendo Al-qaeda, este grupo mercenario acusó al otro grupo mercenario de traidor y apoyar al ejercito invasor Turco…
Imagino que la amistad de nuevo tienen que ver con obtención de armas y suministros de parte del gobierno Turco.

No doubt Turkey brokered this to renew the offensive against Syria
