Civilians in the town of Ma’arat al-Nu’aman in Southern Idlib took to the streets against Syria’s Tahrir Front and Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) that have been engaged in heavy infighting in recent weeks.
Heavy infighting between the two main rival groups in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib caused people in the region to cut off Aleppo-Damascus highway to show their anger over the occupation of their towns by the terrorist groups.
In the meantime, a large number of people in the town of al-Abzamou in Western Aleppo demonstrated against Tahrir al-Sham in the last two days, calling for their expulsion.
Local sources said that Tahrir al-Sham dispersed the protestors by opening fire at them, killing and wounding a number of them.
On Monday, control over several regions in Northern Syria was exchanged between Syria’s Tahrir Front and Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at following fierce clashes among rival groups in Western Aleppo.
Tahrir al-Sham recaptured the village of Taqad in Western Aleppo earlier today after they lost it to Syria’s Tahrir front on Sunday.
A tough battle is now underway between the two rival groups in the villages and towns of Bastaroun, Ajel, al-Abzamou, al-Habatah, al-Zaba’a hills, al-Nu’aman and Taqad in Western Aleppo. Both warring sides have reportedly sustained a number of casualties in the clashes.
In the meantime, a number of Syria’s Tahrir front members were killed after a booby-trap went off in the village of Balanta in Western Aleppo.
