BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – Heavy clashes were reported this evening in the Idlib Governorate, when members of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) and Hurras Al-Deen opened fire on one another near the administrative capital.
According to reports from the Idlib Governorate, the two jihadist groups traded gunfire in the western outskirts of the administrative capital.
No information has been released about the total number of casualties.
Some opposition activists are now reporting that the Hurras Al-Deen group, which has several foreign jihadists, is preparing to storm the administrative capital, which is mostly under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham is considered the most powerful jihadist group in Idlib, as they are often at the forefront of every major battle in the governorate.
