The sources said that Liwaa Fajr al-Ummah announced that they are joining forces with Ahrar al-Sham to fight against Faylaq al-Rahman in Eastern Ghouta.
The announcement by Liwaa Fajr al-Ummah came just hours after Ahrar al-Sham came under attack by Faylaq al-Rahman in the town of Arbin.
Prior to the attack, Faylaq al-Rahman had warned Ahrar al-Sham to either join forces with them or face elimination – the latter did not respond to the demand.
In relevant developments in the province on Tuesday, Jeish al-Islam in a statement announced that its forces launched a fresh round of attacks on rival terrorist groups in Eastern Ghouta.
Jeish al-Islam’s statement said that after a halt in military operations against Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board) a number of Tahrir al-Sham forces launched an attack on Jeish al-Islam’s positions with the participation of Faylaq al-Rahman.
Jeish al-Islam accused the commander of Faylaq al-Rahman of providing weapons, shelter and equipment for the remaining pockets of Tahrir al-Sham.
In the meantime, a number of militants were killed after a fresh round of clashes between Jeish al-Islam with Faylaq al-Rahman and Tahrir al-Sham in Eastern Ghouta.
