On October 9, ISIS terrorists attacked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) terrorists in the northern Hama countryside near the southern administrative border of the Syrian Idlib province.

ISIS members that attacked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) allegedly sneaked to northern Hama from the area east of Salamiyah where they had been besieged by the Syrian Army.

The ISIS-linked news agency Amaq claimed that ISIS seized a dozen of villages from HTS and killed at least 1 HTS member.

ISIS were allegedly in control of Jub Al Tabqalia, Abu Lafa, Nafila, Murjajib, Al Jumlan, Shakushiya, Wadi Zarub, Um Al Fawr, Hasrat, Rasm Al Ahmar, Sarha, Sarha Shamaliya and Al Mostariha when HTS reacted and launched a counter-attack in the area.

HTS claimed that its members destroyed a 23mm gun belonging to ISIS and accused the Syrian government of providing ISIS members a safe passage to northern Hama.

According to reports, an intense fighting is now ongoing there.

      While we wish it was so , really its just an American media ploy to claim ISIS presence in western Syria , when they have none .

      • bcbingram

        Why ?

        • Ronald

          Do you remember how upset the US got when the gun-runners on the Lebanese border , the Al Qaeda and ISIS pocket was cleaned out . By creating a “pocket” , it adds to confusion , especially media , and equally important , that pocket can be backed up with new jihadist recruits .

      • FlorianGeyer

        That is a distinct possibility. The US terror units often ‘change flags’ to support the Western Narrative.

  • Free man

    ISIS is fighting al-Qaeda.
    Jihadists fight jihadists.
    What a joy.

  • Zainab Ali

    waiting for legitimate sources to confirm such news – terrorists are all the same – scumbags

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      This has been even confirmed by the same terrorist scumbag sources,by pro government sources the ISIS were transferred there earlier from the pocket as agreed by HTS. Then other ISIS groups who slipped Qaratayn pocket crept into the region while ISIS demanded territory HTS refused , now we are at where this story begins now.

  • dutchnational

    Reported this here myself earlier in another report on SF.

    Astonishing.

    Two such like minded groups and in the face of disaster, they attack eachother? Truly, IS must be a death cult.

    • Free man

      ISIS does what is good for ISIS.
      They have no allies but their God.
      And apparently their God is very, very cruel.

        ” They have no allies but their God. ”

        You forgot Israel. The Israeli God, Mammon, is also very cruel.

    • Kira Binkley

      Appears to me as if ISIS is aiding Assad. All the better.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Yes but unwittingly they are helping.

  • George King

    Diabolical? Brilliant, Sun Tzu in practice in designated areas by the Syrian coalition’s deescalation zones.

    The latest ‘infiltration tactic’ is simply a variant of the same tactics used throughout the war, which is to attack headlong, putting their troops in an untenable position, which causes them to suffer heavy losses for no actual gain, and in which certain cases leads them to becoming surrounded in pockets which are known as “cauldrons”. The term “cauldron” (sometimes translated as “kettle”) to describe how these pockets work.

      The SAA decided to flank the city and took the eastern bank at the Siyasah bridge and are liberating the eastern region and have control of 50% of the city. The SAA and IAF are both in preparations to secure the border by liberating Abukamal and Al Quaim. Let’s wish these Noble Men of God victory in these actions of liberation!

  • Joe Doe

    ISIS is fighting al-Qaeda, which is a good new for SAA.

    • matt

      and mayebe assad is using isis again

      • FlorianGeyer

        Idiot.

        • matt

          so, you think that motherfucker is some saint???? he is just another fucking sociopath ME ruler, you fool!!!

          • FlorianGeyer

            He has more courage and honour than you Matt.
            President Assad and his British wife could have fled to a life of luxury elsewhere BUT they both chose to stay in Damascus with their people and resist the US/Israeli plan to create another Libyan disaster in Syria.

            Even when the black flag of Isis was at the city gates , President Assad stood firmly with his people.
            He stayed and you would have fled Matt.

          • matt

            pfhhhh, you are pathetic man. you sound like someone that needs to believe in fairytales in order to keep up with this cruel world

          • FlorianGeyer

            I am just stating FACTS Matt that can be proven , the evidence is in Damascus now.

            I am somewhat amused at the plethora of obfuscation now coming from shill posters with thousands ( at least two with 17,000+ ) of posts to their names.

            South Front must be touching a nerve in Langley, the Pentagon, and Tel Aviv :) :) :)

          • matt

            up till now, i NEVER caught you stating FACTS yet ;) just nonesense. Just because they did not leave doesn’t make them nice people!!!!
            i personaly know several syrian refugees that will tell you to put your “facts” up your ass

          • RTA (Bob or Al)

            Piss off muppet.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Read my posts they have good news!

          • RTA (Bob or Al)

            Cheers, I enjoy good news, but this matt like a few others annoys me beyond words.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            matt is just another troll account of one person.

          • matt

            are you his bitch?

          • RTA (Bob or Al)

            No, his gigalo.

          • Kira Binkley

            Is that where the trolls are from?

            Well, we keep trying!!!

          • FlorianGeyer

            I have no idea ,except that they are organised in the methods that they use to mock. Who gains ? Most of the troll types support the US and NWO types, so it stands to reason that the US and her allies stand to gain.

            Their playbook script does not change. It has been the same for a decade or more in my experience.

          • Kira Binkley

            What’s interesting is their attempt to ridicule those who are telling the truth about them. I’m finding that so in U.S. forums as well. As if that will keep the truth from coming out.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Ridicule is their main weapon along with profane language Kira. Many are not well informed.

          • Kira Binkley

            Ridicule and their attempts to shut down free speech.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Shutting down Free Speech is the main method adopted by despots to keep their subjects blissfully ignorant.
            Even in Cambodia this week a scholar is facing 15 years in jail for doubting the historical account of a past king winning a battle whilst on an elephant.
            The battle was 400 years ago :)

            However ,one of the US Social Media platforms was complaining of an Orwellian Ministry of Truth in the US Government , as in the Book 1984. This complaint was more about losses in revenue than championing Freedom of Speech I think :)

          • Kira Binkley

            It is the main weapon of Leftism/Global Deep State, as they have reason in their philosophy/idiotology—none that makes sense. It is simply power mongering. How to break through, though?

          • FlorianGeyer

            Eventually the ordinary citizens are the key when they stop believing anything the ruling elite say. Even to the extent of ‘looking out of the window’ to see if the elite weather report was accurate.
            The UK is again drifting further toward censorship.

            Most nations though censor the depravity of their ruling class all of the time. Paedophilia amongst the elite’s is a desire and also a control mechanism.

          • Kira Binkley

            Don’t know if I’d go that far. Seems too particulate to me. I mean if you’re gonna come up with a vice, there are more evil ones than that, in the general sense, although pederasty is definitely not nice.

            The greatest evil in the world is the abuse of power, and all other evils derive from that.

            There is certainly a use and need for the proper wielding of power. Unfortunately, men’s minds or hearts are geared sometimes to the improper use, and the addiction of power.

  • TheSecular

    ROFL….TROLOLOLOLO.

  • Floyd Hazzard

    I see the SAA has given the encircled ISIS a different path to paradise. Smart, instead of losing troops cleaning them out, let them just abandon Hama and go fight their kind in Idlib.

    • FlorianGeyer

      ISIS families were transported there , so it makes sense that the men wanted to protect them from the Al Nusra rapists and child molesters :)

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      These were the ones accepted 10 days ago by HTS and they didn’t want to give ISIS any territory.

  • Rafik Chauhan

    EVEN IF SAA PROVIDE SAFE PASAGE TO ISIL TO IDLIB IS SAME LIKE SAA PROVIDE HTS AND FSA SAFE PASSAGE FROM THE BORDER AREA OF LEBNON TO IDLIB SO HTS SHOULD NOT CRY. IF HTS HAS PROBLEM WITH ISIL THEN YOU FIGHT AND REMOVE THEM

    • Kira Binkley

      Must be driving the U.S., the rebels, the Kurds, and now HTS crazy, trying to figure this one out!!

  • Kira Binkley

    Wonder who the U.S. is going to back in this skirmish? The wrong party, of course, but who would that be, do you think? If HTS fights Assad, then surely Trump will back them.
    Anyway, I thought Idlib was a de-escalation zone.

    • RTA (Bob or Al)

      It was before the HTS got out of line.

  • sagbotgamot

    OMG! This is not what the zionist expected to happen. Pentagon spent billions of dollars for ISIS / HTS / Al Qaeda to remove Assad in Syria but look what’s happening!

    • RTA (Bob or Al)

      Wait until the Turks get involved as well.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        The SAA and SSNP secured the Jabal al Saroukh on the Sukhna- DE highway.

  • Daniel

    This seems to me like a media stunt just like with ISIS and SDF in East Deir Ezzor. Now with Turkey in Idlib I can imagine some big talks are coming and HTS wants to get rid of the image of being an ally of ISIS. Though they tried to assist the ISIS pocket in East Hama.

  • Solomon Krupacek

    so, is now isis backed by usa, or not?

    • Kira Binkley

      Driving the Kurds crazy. Believe ISIS is working with Assad.

  • Jakke1899

    This news sounds to good to be true… Why would ISIS attack HTS, instead of joining them? I doubt they were able to bring their heavy weapons with them… They are imo to small a unit to survive, hemmed in between HTS and SAA. Isn’t this just fake news?

  • Werner Knöllermann

    the enemy of my enemy is my friend…hmmm….lol
