The National Front for Liberation (NFL) announced on November 30 that its militants ambushed a unit of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) around the Greater Idlib region.
The unit was reportedly attempting to infiltrate the NFL’s defense near the town of Tell Dam in southeast Idlib, when it fell into an ambush set by the group’s militants.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), five Syrian service members were killed and a sixth was captured alive. Activists confirmed that an SAA soldier was captured, but the number of causalities is yet to be verified.
The NFL joined the Turkish-sponsored Syrian National Army (SNA) a few months ago. Now, the group is participating in the Turkish-led attack on Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria.
Despite its cooperation with Turkey, the NFL maintained a presence in Greater Idlib where its militants are working with al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other terrorist groups.
