Scores of terrorists have been killed during fierce clashes between the Ahrar al-Sham and the Jund al-Aqsa terrorist groups in southern Idlib.
Fierce clashes between the Ahrar al-Sham and the Jund al-Aqsa terrorist groups broke out in southern Idlib, the Fars news agency reported on Friday, citing unnamed battlefield sources. Scores of terrorists from both sides were killed and wounded in the clashes.
According to the sources, a number of Jund al-Aqsa members were detained by Ahrar al-Sham fighters, as well as a house of Ali al-Issa, one of the commanders of the Ahrar al-Sham group, was stormed. As result, a fight between the two rival groups broke out.
Positions of the Ahrar al-Sham near the town of Khan Sheikhoun were captured by the Jund al-Aqsa group, which also seizes the whole city later.
Meanwhile, a base of terrorists in the eastern side of al-Dana was bombed by the Syrian Air Force. As result, scores of terrorists were killed.
According to earlier today’s reports, one of the notorious commanders of the Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group, Jomah Hawash, also known as Abu Talib, was killed in a heavy fighting with the Jund al-Aqsa in Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idlib.
Last month, Idlib’s media reported about strengthening of infighting between the two terrorist groups, stationed in the region of Ariha.
“The differences have increased among the Jund al-Aqsa and Ahrar al-Sham terrorist groups in Ariha region in Idlib province in the Northwestern part of Syria,” Arabic-language media quoted an informed source at the time.
According to the source, the main reason of the intensification of the differences between the terrorist groups was an attack of a Jund al-Aqsa terrorist on a brother of the commander of the Ariha Battalion of the Ahrar al-Sham group.
Infighting between rival terrorist groups has increased in Idlib province, after the Syrian Army besieged the area, as well as recaptured vast parts of lands throughout the country, especially in neighboring Aleppo.
