BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The large rebel faction, Ajnad Al-Sham, announced its intentions to leave the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham ranks in favor of joining rival Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

Ajnad Al-Sham released a statement through Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s official media wing; they become the latest faction to defect from the Al-Qaeda linked Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham coalition.

In addition to Ajnad Al-Sham’s defection, the commanderr of Al-Tamkeen Brigade – “Abu Kamal” – announced he is defecting from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and joining Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

This latest defection comes just days after Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham carried out an attack on the rebel forces in the Idlib Governorate city of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man.
