BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – The newly-formed rebel alliance between Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki imposed full control over the Idlib Governorate city of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man on Wednesday, pro-opposition activists reported.
According to these reports, Jabhat Tahrir Souriya took control of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, Wednesday, following the complete withdrawal of all Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham forces from the city.
As a result of this action, Jabhat Tahrir Al-Souriya has seized two major cities in the Idlib Governorate over the last 24 hours.
The previous city Jabhat Tahrir Al-Souriya took control of on Wednesday was Ariha, which is located just south of Idlib’s provincial capital.
Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham has recently consolidated their forces in the Idlib Governorate, moving many of their reserves from towns and cities they have little support in.
