Jaish al-Fatah militants have launched an advance in the southern outskirts of Syria’s Aleppo city. The militants seized the village of Marata and 2 ammunition depots near the town of Khan Tuman.
Jaish al-Fatah is a joint operation room of Islamist factions. At least 3 of them – al-Nusra, Ahrar ash-Sham, and Jund al-Aqsa – are directly linked to Al-Qaeda or have a similar ideology. Experts beleve that these groups represent 90 percent of the operation room’s troops.
