“A security unit of al-Nusra Front attacked the headquarters of the Idlib Free Army and fled the scene after killing two field commanders of the group, namely Younis Zariq and Ahmad al-Khatib,” the sources said on Tuesday.
According to the sources, another group also attacked an outpost set up by Ahrar al-Sham militants in al-Habit village in Southern Idlib and killed three members of the terrorist group.
Also reports earlier this month said that the terrorist groups in Kafr Oweid in Southern Idlib announced formation of a military organization to secede from the al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham in the town after the first convoy of their comrades left Eastern Aleppo for Idlib.
The announcement was made after a one-hour-long meeting among the terrorist commanders in Kafr Oweid town, in which the difficult situation that the militants are facing was discussed, according to sources.
Reliable sources in Idlib said that the Syrian army troops and popular forces’ devastating advances against Jeish al-Fatah terrorists in Aleppo city have pushed militants in Idlib into deep fear, disunity and collapse.
Sources added that pro-government forces’ advances against Jeish al-Fatah in the Eastern district of Aleppo have caused terrorists, who have been targeting residential areas in the besieged towns of Foua’a and Kafraya in Northern Idlib, to live in fear because analysts believe that the Syrian army will move toward Idlib province after setting Aleppo free.
