A sum of 40 terrorists were killed and tens more were wounded in a fresh round of heavy infighting between Tahrir al-Sham and NLF-affiliated Nouralddeen al-Zinki in Western Aleppo.
Abu Ahmad Homsi, a notorious commander of al-Zinki, was killed in the infighting near the town of Dar al-Izzah, a field source said, adding that tens of civilians have also been killed or wounded in the clashes between rival terrorists.
Tahrir al-Sham seized the village of Basratoun in Western Aleppo and entered the strategic town of Dar al-Izzah following the clashes.
The Arabic-language Lebanese TV Channel reported on Tuesday that Tahrir al-Sham engaged in fierce clashes with Nouralddeen al-Zinki in Western Aleppo and managed to capture the villages of al-Sa’adiyah and al-Habayah and also Mount Sheikh Barakat.
It further said that Tahrir al-Sham seized control over the villages of Taqad and Ajel in Western Aleppo and its militants are now advancing and entering the small town of Basratoun.
It went on to say that the clashes have inflicted a number of casualties on both warring sides and also on civilians, adding that Nouralddeen al-Zinki has captured three gunmen of Tahrir al-Sham.
