On January 19, Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) attacked a number of Ahrar al-Sham checkpoints and local headquarters in the militant-held province of Idlib.

After a series of clashes, Jabhat Fatah al-Sham units seized from Ahrar al-Sham the Khirbet al-Jawz crossing on Turkish border, few checkpoints and a local headquarters in Khirbet al-Jawz. Some Ahrar al-Sham members were taken captive.

An infighting between the militant groups were also reported near Darkoush, Jisr ash-Shugur and Bdama. Jabhat Fatah al-Sham captured a number of Ahrar al-Sham positions in Jisr ash-Shugur and Bdama.

The situation is now unclear in Darkoush.

The groups are blaming each other in the social media for undermining the “values of Syrian revolution”.

Local sources say that the clashes are result of the ongoing “political” standoff among militant groups for the power in the province of Idlib which became the main militant stronghold in Syria after the liberation of the Aleppo city.

    As the money dry up, they will start eating each other, since they know nothing else to do, other than sit on their ass all day holding a filthy gun. No jobs, no prospects, nothing. Most of them are foreign, too.

      Agree. Losers. I hope SAA kills them all and they kill each other.

      They may be pissed off. Attached notice to paycheck says “Void in 24 hours”

    When you put a lot a lot of wild dogs (or terrorists) in a cage (Idlib), things can quickly spiral out of control.
