BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – On Monday, Syrian Al-Qaeda affiliate group Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (better known by its former name, Al-Nusra Front) launched a swift counter-offensive against rival Islamist militia Jabhat Tahrir Souriya amid ongoing clashes in the western countryside of Aleppo province.

Rebel sources report that Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham managed to recapture the towns of As-Sadiyah, Sahyan, Aajel and Jamiyat al-Fursan from Jabhat Tahrir Souriya only hours after the latter had seized them itself.

The Free Syrian Army-linked Noor al-Din al-Zenki faction (part of Jabhat Tahrir Souriya) reportedly lost four vehicles to Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham – in detail, one armed pickup and a van captured as well as 2 other technicals destroyed.

Both warring rebel factions took on relatively serious losses as a result the engagement with about fifteen fighters being killed on each side during clashes that only lasted a matter of hours.
