The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) has abandoned several fronts that they share with other rebel groups in order to reinforce their fighters in southern Aleppo.
According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus, Syrian military intelligence received reports of a large build-up of fighters from Jabhat Al-Nusra in the southern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate.
The Al-Masdar correspondent stated that many of these fighters came from the Hama countryside, where several truces are currently implemented between the Syrian Armed Forces and the rebels.
As a result of this, Jabhat Al-Nusra can afford to transfer fighters from Hama to the Aleppo Governorate in order to combat the large Hezbollah, IRGC, and Iraqi paramilitary presence near the strategic town of Tal Al-‘Eiss.
On Tuesday morning, Jabhat Al-Nusra was able to beat back the Hezbollah assault on Tal Al-‘Eiss after several hours of fighting; this happened because of the large personnel presence at this front.
It seems Jabhat Al-Nusra is going all-in to defeat the large-scale government offensive that is supposed to happen in the coming the days.
