DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:00 P.M.) – The war tearing up jihadi factions in northern Syria is far from end with bloody infighting kills more militants from all warring parties.
In the southern countryside of jihadist-controlled Idlib province, the al-Qaeda-linked Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham killed Muhammad Abu al-Biishr, the son of Suqour al-Sham military commander Aby Ayssa al-Sheikh during clashes in Mariyan town.
This sparked outrage amid the FSA-affiliated faction which vowed vengeance.
Suqour al-Sham is part of Syrian Liberation Front (Jabhat Tahrir Souriya) alliance which also includes Ahrar al-Sham and the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement. The newly-formed group is engaged in a war against its main rival; HTS.
Ferocious battles broke out between the two warring parties across south Idlib and west Aleppo countryside , with both sides exchange control over several towns and villages, while sustain heavy losses.
In the same context, HTS security chief Abu al-Baraa was assassinated by unidentified assailants by opening fire at his vehicle near Hader town, south Aleppo countryside.
