Waltir Net reported that recent advances of the Syrian army troops against militants in different parts of the country and in the meantime Turkey’s overt retreat from its previous positions to topple President Bashar al-Assad have caused the terrorist groups to decide to leave the country for Saudi Arabia and other Middle-Eastern countries.
The website said that terrorists of Ahrar al-Sham, in a meeting held in the group’s council on December 19, underlined that they do not intend to merge with Fatah al-Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front).
Ahrar al-Sham’s meeting was held before the recapture of Eastern Aleppo by the Syrian pro-government forces, which was a sign of major defeat of Fatah al-Sham and Ahrar al-Sham.
The website went on to say that latest images released recently show that two groups of Ahrar al-Sham and Fatah al-Sham are practically hoisting different flags indicating their defection.
The two groups showed their wide differences with their white and black flags.
Meantime, dissident sources said Al-Nusra Front is preparing war plans to force Ahrar al-Sham militant group out of Idlib after reports said the latter has signed the ceasefire agreement brokered by Russia and Turkey between the Syrian government and some militant groups.
Sources close to the dissident groups in Northwestern Syria said that Al-Nusra has prepared war plans to capture the entire Idlib province and force Ahrar al-Sham back across the border into Turkey after the latter militant group joined the ceasefire agreement between the Syrian government and the so-called moderate dissidents that tasks Ahrar al-Sham to assign a new mission to all its militants that used to fight against the Syrian government to stand against the Al-Nusra Front as a terrorist group and open war on the Al-Qaeda offshoot in Idlib.
Meantime, media sources reported that Turkey has warned all militant groups in Idlib that merger with al-Nusra would amount to “suicide” as Ankara has agreed to separate al-Nusra Front and extremist commanders from other groups in Northern Syria.
