BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – Following a series of devastating defeats in southern Idlib and northern Hama, the jihadist rebels find themselves with “significant divisions” within their ranks, the Syria-based Al-Watan newspaper reported.

Citing opposition sources, Al-Watan said the divisions are occurring between Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s Shura Council and their Salvation Government.

The divisions have been caused by their unwillingness to share administrative influence over the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham-held areas inside the Idlib GOvernorate.

“In parallel, the sites reported that administrative and financial corruption and the major mistakes made by leaders of the organization led some of its gunmen to leave their ranks,” Al-Watan said, citing opposition media.

These divisions reportedly began to emerge after Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham suffered a series of losses at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Among these jihadist losses were their pocket in northern Hama and the key city of Khan Sheikhoun, which had been under their control for several years.

Since then, accusations of betrayal and financial corruption have plagued these jihadist-held areas inside the Idlib Governorate.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham HAVE BECOME A LAUGHING STOCK. For all that tough talk & show of strength videos on how they will defeat SAA instead of a ROAR & attack & decimating Syrian Arab Army it was a meek MEOW & Collapse in the hands of SAA!! 🙂 🙂 😉 😉

SAA shouldn’t go too fast.
The goal should be having them forced to take as much as possible personnel from behind the lines to avoid the front to collapse, then launch a blitzkrieg operation along the Turkish border as a pincher movement.
If not, these jihadis will be able to flee, and we’ll have a metastasis effect as be sure ErDOG won’t keep ’em in Turkey. They’ll very likely “respawn” in Northern Syria if not Iraq while some may move to wreck havoc elsewhere…
Booting them too fast would only be interesting on the short term = Pyrrhic victory.

All terrorists left in Idlib should be hunted down and slaughtered with the same mercy they have shown towards those that they butchered.

Esta opinión está provocado por Erdogan para que sus mercenarios sean quienes dirigan la defensa de Idlib
