Turkey Planning to Merge Terrorist Groups in Northern Syria
“Since last February Ankara has been trying to incorporate Tahrir al-Sham with other Turkey-backed militant groups in Northern Syria,” sources close to the terrorist groups said.
This comes as Turkey had fueled tensions between Tahrir al-Sham and other groups of Syria’s Tahrir Front in Northern Syria.
“Accordingly several meetings between commanders of Tahrir al-Sham and commanders of the Turkish army have been held in Turkey,” the sources added without specifying any further details on the outcome of the talks.
In a relevant development last Tuesday, Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at managed to recapture the lands lost to rival terrorists of Syria’s Tahrir front in Western Aleppo.
Tahrir al-Sham stormed the positions of Syria’s Tahrir front in Western Aleppo and seized control again over the villages of Labanta, al-Habatah and two regions of Ja’iyeh al-Sa’adiyeh and Ebud al-Rahman.
The two warring sides sustained casualties in the clashes.
In the meantime, Syria’s Tahrir front stormed the positions of Tahrir al-Sham in the small town of Uroum al-Kobra in Western Aleppo.
