BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 P.M.) – Over, 1,500 militants from the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF) have exited the southwestern countryside of the Idlib province, rebel activists claimed via social media.

According to the reports, the National Liberation Front withdrew approximately 1,700 militants from the Jabal Shashabo and Al-Ghaab Plain fronts after they reached an agreement with the jihadist-led Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham group.

The agreement between the two rebel groups was made after Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham managed to capture several towns and villages near the Al-Ghaab Plain and Jabal Shashabo fronts.

The National Liberation Front reportedly transferred its troops from southwestern Idlib to the Afrin region of northwestern Aleppo.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham is now working to capture two major cities in the Idlib province that are currently under the control of the National Liberation Front.

The two cities, Ariha and Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, have been under the control of the National Liberation Front’s rebel factions since they were captured from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

Suspicion is he traded Manbij for Idlib with Russia. Like he traded Aleppo for azaz etc.
