BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – The situation around Idlib city has gotten worse over the last few hours, as the Al-Qaeda-linked Hurras Al-Deen group has reached the outskirts of the administrative capital.

According to the latest reports, the Hurras Al-Deen group managed to seize more ground from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (formerly Jabhat Al-Nusra) after a day of intense clashes at the western axis of Idlib city.

The Hurras Al-Deen group is now attempting to capture the last checkpoints at the western outskirts of Idlib city, as they inch closer to entering the administrative capital.

Tensions have been recently running high between the two jihadist groups, culminating in a fierce battle for control of several areas west of Idlib city.

Both jihadist groups, which have a large number of foreign combatants, are considered two of the strongest hard-line forces in Syria, as they have been at the forefront of several important battles against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
