Members of an assassination cell, which has killed several forgiven fighters and commanders of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), has confessed that they received support and orders from the Ahrar al-Sham Movement and the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement, the HTS-linked news agency Iba’a reported on February 25.

One of the assassination cell’s members revealed that the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement had formed special cells to assassinate HTS fighters and said that he had personally received orders from a commander of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement to assassinate fighters of HTS.

The assassination cell, which is known as “Tajmae Nasrat al-Mazlum”, has claimed responsibility for several assassinations in northern Syria over the last few years. However, Syrian oppositions sources used to claim that the cell had been linked to the intelligence services of Syria, Russia, Turkey or even the US.

In a related development, pro-HTS activists reported that HTS had begun massing its forces in several areas of Idlib governorate in order to launch an attack against the Syria’s Liberation Front (SLF) – an alliance of Ahrar al-Sham and Nour al-Din al-Zenki.

An unnamed religious scholar of HTS said that the armed group is massing its forces in a video released by Iba’a and warned the fighters of the SLF that they will face a “strong response” if they continue attacking HTS.

So far, HTS and the SLF have not accepted any initiative to end the ongoing armed conflict between them. Many Syrian pro-opposition news outlet to describe the conflict between the two armed groups as “a war of abolition”.

      Among others, the struggle for leadership over the Sunni Islam is also ongoing in the MENA, especially in Syria. Saudi wahhabism and Turkish “moderate” sunnism (both jihadi branches) are clashing violently. New realities and dynamics are now rapidly forming up.

    “A war of abolition” , or cleansing.
    This is what we love about the Wahhabi, their style of “cleansing”, we only hope they cleanse themselves right off the planet.

      They’re already doing that. Any time they get left alone by the SAA the infighting starts. In which case the SAA and the Russians should always take care to support the weaker side to keep the infighting going.

      • Ronald

        Turkey and the US have that covered already, stand back and let them at each other , save any civilians that can be smuggled out. Their fighting if monitored could reveal at least some of their locations.

        No they are all Al Qaeda affiliates just various branches who constantly fight among themselves , this is nothing new as HTS is Turkish backed, the other Harakats (SLF) are Pentagon and NSA backed groups. This is easier than following US politics.

        • PZIVJ

          I thought SLF was Turkish backed. Either way, as long as they keep fighting each other, it is a win win situation. :)

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Both groups that formed SLF are US backed HTS and TFSA is Turkish controlled and GCC backed along with it’s allies the TIP or Uighurs and Chechnyans etc. hard to keep track of the terrorists at all times “keep your hands in the vehicle and please don’t feed the animals”.

    Nice you need to be assassinated you bastards how long how much more you want to torture Syria and it’s people what is your propaganda why are you in Syria, what the HTS benefits from this Idlib place. I would understand when the chaos was in 2014-2017 too many jihadists were competing for a place. But Dash is almost wiped from Syria it has only few pockets small once, the war was against them, but what are you doing who’s purpose are you serving of being a Jihad group in Syria and you constantly dying from the SAA and the Russians and you still persist to be there. Poppets you are all poppets you are not even Jihadists or nothing. You are nothing just proxy pions for western Zionists and neocons. HTS you are so pathetic and disgusting people.Its been 7 years lol. This is good you need to kill each-other, it’s a sign , the separation from your HTS the other groups separating from you indicates that you are just rats. And do us all favor please kill each-other there better for the world… You are wasting the earth’s oxygen for nothing. Jihadi Ideology lol just imagine.
