The Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) supported a failed attack of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in northern Hama on June 27 by targeting vehicles and positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) with guided missiles and Grad rockets.
The group released two videos showing its fighters destroying a van carrying several Syrian soldiers and a truck armed with a 57mm gun near the town of Tell Huwash in northern Hama with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).
In a third attack, NFL fighters launched a barrage of Grad rockets at several positions of the SAA in the northwestern part of Hama.
These attacks are an example of the NFL strong cooperation with HTS, which was the main branch of al-Qaeda in Syria up until 2017. Despite this, Turkey is still supporting the group, according to local sources.
