BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels recently sent a large number of reinforcements to the Idlib Governorate to help build their defenses around the strategic Abu Dhuhour Military Airport in the eastern part of the province, a Syrian military source told Al-Masdar News on Friday.

According to the military source, jihadist rebels from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and several other factions have moved to the southern and eastern parts of Idlib to help defend the province, despite their tiffs with the Al-Qaeda linked Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham terrorist group.

The source added that foreign jihadists from Turkestan and Uzbekistan moved from Jisr Al-Shughour, the Al-Ghaab Plain, and northeast Latakia to aid in this battle against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

In the coming weeks, the battle for Idlib will likely intensify as the Syrian Arab Army pushes further north from the Hama axis towards the Abu Dhuhour Military Airport.
