Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham Captures 15 Villages And Towns From Competing Militant Group In Southern Idlib

On April 15, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) launched a large-scale military operation against the Syrian Liberation Front (SLF) in the southern part of Idlib province capturing the towns of Murak and Khan Shaykhun, according to the HTS-linked news agency Iba’a.

The news agency also reported that HTS fighters had imposed their control of the villages of Rakaya Sijneh, Maarzita, Jbala, Maar Tamater, Kafr Ein, Sheikh Mustafa, Madaya, Kafrsajna, Hish, Sahyan, Kafr Mazda, Ameriyeh and Moqa around Murak and Khan Shaykhun.

The SLF vowed to repel HTS attack in an official statement and said that it will not allow “power hungry” sides to control the “revolution or its recourse.”

Syrian opposition sources reported that HTS had been planning this attack for a long time. The main goal of the HTS attack was to capture the commercial crossing south of the town of Murak, according to the sources.

The city of Maarrat al-Nu’man, north of Khan Kaykhun, and few villages around are now considered the last positions of the SLF in southern Idlib. HTS will likely launch a second phase of its military operation to capture Maarrat al-Nu’man within the upcoming days.

The so-called “war of abolition” erupted between HTS and the SLF on February 19. Since then, more than 350 fighters of both groups along with 25 civilians had been killed, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

      US, UK and France have destroyed the strategic balance and stability in the Eastern Europe and in the Middle East a lot for their own malicious goals.
      Mr. Putin could join the regional partners to preserve the strategic balance and stability in the Eastern Europe and in the Middle East region because this is very important for the Russian own security in the whole region. In this field the Russian intel knows better.

    This is fifth generation war in which Israel through US and UK first send well trained army as terrorists and deplomatic officers for covert operations to control all institutions in the target country by killing key politicians, journalists, barristers and other top wise leaders etc and then later on they take full country. For example Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, Libya, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia etc.

    If Syrian nation liberate whole land from these morons of US, UK and France so then they will create another war in another country. Still at this moment the morons of US, UK and France operating in many defenseless countries and slaughtering innocent civilians there, for example Syria, Palestine, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Nigeria etc. Because majority of Muslim leaders are corrupt.

    Look at those rats…equiped and armed better than SAA. One doesn’t have to be “exeptional” to understand whos irregular armed forces they are.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      They are actually Special Forces and not HTS should be no surprise whose special forces since they look like your UK SAS can always tell they are slightly overweight and not as good as counterparts in other countries.

      • Tudor Miron

        Good one.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          All the new incoming equipment is for Russian Airborne supposedly being stationed in Deir ezzoir as the US and SDF have been steadily building up in the region.

    Rats eating each other when locked in a burrel. Classic.

    The Turkish army have observation posts in these towns.

    This friendly relations between turkey and HTS (the name al Qaida goes by in Syria) is a serious error on the part of turkey that will lead to their destruction.
