Nour al-Din al-Zenki And Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham Reconcile To Fight Syrian Army

On November 17, the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nursa, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) reached a full reconciliation agreement, according to the HTS-linked news agency Iba’a. The two groups signed a preliminary ceasefire agreement on November 12.

According to the new reconciliation agreement, the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) will form a joint committee to solve all the problems between them. Al-Zenki and HTS will also release all the fighters who have captured during the recent clashes. They will also retreat to their initial positions in the Aleppo countryside, according to the agreement.

Most notably, al-Zenki and HTS will form a new “joint operation room” to intensify their operations against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies.

The agreement between Al-Zenki and HTS is a perfect example of how such radical Islamist groups can overcome any differences they have, including killing each other, thanks to the radical ideology they share. This ideology is also the same reason why it is impossible to fully separate such radical groups from each other.

In a separated development, Syrian opposition sources reported that an Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV) targeted a car near the sugar company in the eastern part of Idlib city on November 17. According to reports, two Turkistan fighters who were inside the car were killed in the airstrike.

Only the US, Iran and Turkey are openly operating UCAVs in Syria. The fact that the airstrike targeted the Turkistan fighters suggests that Turkey was behind it. Turkey is currently trying to limit the influence of foreign Jihadists in Idlib governorate.

      Good riddance to these child-headchopping pigs.there never really was any significant difference between these turco groups anyway.

      They just spit up into alphabet -soup groups to fool stupid average -joes so that they dont get bombed into mince meat by russia.

    UCAV is a weapon for cowards !

      In a war there are only effective weapons, ineffective weapons and maybe forbidden weapons although most players in the Syrian theater do not seem to care about that.

        In June 2015 forty-five former US military personnel issued a joint appeal to pilots of aerial drones operating in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and elsewhere urging them to refuse to fly and indicated that their missions “profoundly violate domestic and international laws.” They noted that these drone attacks also undermine principles of human rights

    These shitheads wanna die too? Its no problem for SAA to kill them I’m sure :)))

  • Barba_Papa

    Bah, I already said that this fight was a huge disappointment, like some hyped up boxing match between two heavy weight fighters that is already over in the first round. And now we’re not even getting the rematch? I want my money back!

    This is exactly what I was womndering about just one day earlier.

    I am not in favour of these groups, but from a logical point of view, it makes sense and was to be expected,

    In the same logic, likely they will not wait until the assadist forces are being redeployed in their direction, that is unless they expect those same forces to be loosed upon the SDF first. In that case they will wait intill assadist forces are fully deployed against SDF and blooded first.

    For those enjoying chess, developments here are fascinating though deplorable in itself.

      I agree. We must not forget that the US wants a Kurdistan with access to the sea. Idlib is all about that. If the Sunni syrian rebels succeed in pushing south and blocking the Salamiyah-Al Tabqah road, the SAA will struggle to mantain the control over the Aleppo province, which will probrably fall to the hands of the SDF/FSA. The inner fighting in Idlib is about who will do that, the Sunni rebels supported by Turkey or those supported by the US. If Syria wants to focus on the oil rich Deir-Ezzor province, it will probrably be forced to join Turkey against the SDF/US-FSA and, of course, to cede all north Syria to Turkey.
