According to HTS sources, HTS has found dozens of explosive belts, IEDs and weapons fitted with silencers, as well as large sums of money. HTS sources added that clashes with ISIS members are still going on in Sarmin town. HTS claimed that ISIS cells in Idlib were preparing for assassinations and suicide attacks targeting civilians in Idlib City.

However, it’s doubtful that HTS only now realized the presence of so many ISIS members in Idlib Province, especially that ISIS has a very strong presence in Sarmin town. However, HTS campaign is believed to be part of preparations for a forthcoming battle with the Free Syrian Army or Turkey ,as HTS seeks to secure it’s internal matter before any such battles.

    I thought HTS was supported by Turkey..m

      I think that they are mainly a merge of US-backed syrian rebel groups, the so called “moderate oposition”. Now that Turkey is closer to Syria and Russia than the US, they will probably be forced to fight against the Turkey-backed FSA and Qatar-backed ISIS. I also think that the US will try to merge them with the SDF in the far future in order to give, to the new Kurdistan, a good chance to have an exit to Mediterranean.
