Turkey Planning to Merge Terrorist Groups in Northern Syria



Turkey has started efforts to merge Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) and other terrorist groups in Northern Syria as tensions have intensified in the region, sources disclosed on Saturday.

“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.
