BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed National Liberation Front scored an important victory on Thursday after their troops managed to fend off a massive attack by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in southern Idlib.

The National Liberation Front was able to not only beat back the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham fighters near the key city of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, but they also recaptured the important town of Tremla after a fierce battle on Thursday.

In addition to retaking Tremla, the National Liberation Front recaptured the small town of Al-Ghadfah, which is located just east of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man.

The National Liberation Front is now working to clear several other areas that were recently attacked by the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham jihadists in northwest Syria.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched their large-scale offensive this week after five of their  members were gunned down near the town of Dart Izza in western Aleppo.

The jihadist group accused their former allies from Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki of carrying out this attack on their personnel.

In response to the alleged killing of their members, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham wrecked havoc on the Turkish-backed rebel areas, seizing a number of towns, including Dart Izza and Khan Al-Assal.

Well the Syrian war is becoming more and more interesting. SAA & RUAF are resting.

Terrorists are fighting each other and clearing each other in southern Idlib.
