Field sources in Idlib reported on Thursday that unknown assailants attacked Ahrar al-Sham prisons in Northern Idlib, freeing nearly 40 ISIL inmates.
After the attack, Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the al-Nusra front) accused Ahrar al-Sham of collaboration with the assailants to free the ISIL inmates to gather forces for an attack on Tahrir al-Sham position.
The sources said that tensions have heightened among the terrorists in the region, adding that one of the militants’ checkpoints in the town of Ariha in Southern Idlib came under attack with gunfire. A number of terrorists were killed in the incident.
Reports also said that Tahrir al-Sham terrorists have detained a number of Faylaq al-Rahman militants who wanted to move from Idlib to Afrin.
Terrorists had earlier agreed to end clashes after bloody battles in Northern Syria.
In a relevant development on Monday, terrorists’ bases and positions suffered major damage in four bomb blasts in different regions across Idlib province, testifying to the grave security situation in militant-held regions in Northwestern Syria.
A bomb-laden vehicle blasted as a vehicle of Jeish al-Nasr was moving on a street in the town of Ma’arah Mesrin in Northern Idlib, killing and wounding a number of militants.
Also, a bomb, planted by unknown assailants in Jeish al-Ahrar’s vehicle, went off in the town of Saraqib in Eastern Idlib, killing several terrorists.
A third bomb exploded in the town of Ariha and another one in the town of al-Dana in Northern Idlib, leaving a number of terrorists and civilians dead.
Meanwhile, field sources reported that a group of unknown assailants engaged in bloody clashes with Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at near the town of Salqin in Idlib province that ended in casualties on both warring sides.
