Syria: Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, Third Legion forces fail to reach truce
Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham insists on the withdrawal of armed factions from cities and villages north of Aleppo, northern Syria.
Al Mayadeen correspondent said Friday that a meeting between officials from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS), formerly known as Jabhat Al-Nusra, and officials from the Turkish-backed Third Legion forces have failed to reach a truce in the north of Aleppo, northern Syria.
“Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham demanded that the armed factions lift their hands of prisons, service institutions, and local administrations,” the correspondent added.
Al Mayadeen’s correspondent has also noted that "the HTS insists on the withdrawal of armed factions from cities and villages and their concentration of forces on battle fronts instead," adding that "the group aims to implement a project that leads to the complete unification of militant-controlled areas from Idlib to Jarablus [a city in northern Syria]."
HTS storms Jindires
The Hay'at Tahrir Al-Sham stormed the Syrian town of Jindires in Afrin, taking control over various parts of it, Al Mayadeen correspondent reported Wednesday, saying that the storming took place amid confrontations in northwest Aleppo.
"Hay'at Tahrir Al-Sham called for reinforcements from Jabal Zawiya South of Idlib toward the fronts in Afrin in the Aleppo countryside," Al Mayadeen correspondent added.
As the developments were taking place, Turkish-backed factions were fighting in various regions of the cities north of Aleppo, northern Syria.
