Pro-militant sources released a video showing the April 26 clashes between the Turkish Army and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham members near the town of Nayrab in Syria’s southern Idlib. The video claims that Turkish forces opened fire at ‘civilians’, but in fact shows an armed confrontation between Turkish troops and Turkish proxies.
On April 26, the Turkish Army tried to remove the camp of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham-led forces blocking the M4 highway near the town. Nonetheless, Turkish troops faced an armed resistance from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies.
As a result of the clashes at least one Turkish soldier was injured and 4 Hayat Tahrir al-Sham members were killed. Several more miltiants were also injured.
