DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:45 P.M.) – Commander of al-Qaeda-linked group in Syria denied reports about the group’s intention to dissolve and merge with other rebel factions in Syria’s north.

In a speech delivered after Friday prayers, Abu Mohammed al-Jolani told a congregation that all reports about creating a merger with any other group – including Faylaq al-Sham – are farce and untrue.

“The organizational structure of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham is something not to be negotiated or bargained about outside the HTS circle of leadership”, he said.

Unconfirmed reports circulated recently stated that Turkey is seeking to create a new rebel alliance which includes all FSA-affiliated groups in northern Syria such as Free Idlib Army, Jaish al-Izza, Jaish al-Nasser, 1st Coastal Division, as well as Faylaq al-Sham which is expected to lead the alliance.

Yesterday, Turkey has set up the 12th and last observation post in the west countryside of Idlib province as per Astana peace talks.

C’mon, what is needed is at least 4 (or more) groups of equal force…
Sad they can’t be sent on an island for a super-Battle-Royale!
The winner will be allowed to fight SAA as the end-game “boss”!

If only better sense prevails into these shitheads and they just put down their weapons and instead of hugging their own comrades they should hug their own fellow syrians across syria and quit fighting & rebuilding syria. This fighting is being exploited by so many countries who all have their own agenda. The best way to execute these agenda are only through locals.

These guys are Syrians from one province… Read more »

You are right. Erdogan Sultan cooks his own Ottoman soup and the new Jihadi rebel alliance are his new Janissaries and betray Syria.

And You are also true about, Erdogan Sultan may loose what Atatürk President gained. An economic meltdown of Turkey looms. The private fanciers of the Jihadi are recognized and will be shut down,

The public spenders like the Bani Saud and Bani Thani cut down spending. Erdogan will need to fund his warlike Ottomaniac ghazi and the defence of Turkey.

Erdogan quiere juntar todos los terroristas para sus intereses y Al-qaeda rechaza, es lo que entiendo. Putín no quiere entender que el enemigo sigue siendo el gobierno Turco.

The Turks want to create a Jihadi satellite state in Idlib. For this the need a united Jihadi group. The same in Afrin.
