Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) continues its intense fighting against various terrorist groups in Syria. According to the last reports, al-Nusra terrorists have launched a series of attacks on the Idlib’s Central Jail, located in the western part of the city.

Currently, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham is surrounding positions of Faylaq al-Sham and Jabha al-Shamiya (also known as the Levant Front) terrorists, stationed in northern Aleppo, trying to take control over the town of Hayyan.

Meanwhile, militants of the Suqour al-Sham Brigade (also known as the Sham Falcons Brigade) managed to kill five al-Nusra fighters and their field commander, Taha al-Khatib, in Jabal al-Zawiya region, located in southern Idlib.

After the intensification of clashes between terrorists of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham group and other militants, several terrorist groups, including the Army of Mujahideen, Suqour al-Sham, Jaysh al-Islam (in Idlib), Jabhat al-Shamiyah (in western Aleppo) and Istaqam Kama Amart, announced their unification with the Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group.

On Wednesday, al-Nusra terrorists managed to take control over camps of the Army of Mujahideen in the northern part of Latakia. According to reports, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham launched several attacks on military bases of the Army of Mujahideen, located in Jabal al-Turkman and Jabal al-Akrad, and liquidated the last stronghold of the group in the province.

In addition, a top commander of the Army of Mujahideen was detained by al-Nusra terrorists in the coastal areas, Yahya Barimo. Jabhat Fateh al-Sham also managed seize weapons and ammunition of the rival group.

Earlier, Mohammad Abu Bakr, the commander of the Army of Mujahideen announced on his twitter page that the group will be dissolved. However, his deputy denied this statement and said that though the group’s bases are collapsing, it will continue to be presented in social networks.

I thought they already took the Idlib central jail 2-3 days ago. There where video from it as well.


It’s probably a big complex of buildings.
