A new wave of tensions has erupted between the newly-formed Hay’at Tahrir al Sham and Ahrar al Sham in Northern Idlib.

Jabhat Fateh al Sham (formerly al Nusra Front) that forms the main part of Hay’at Tahrir al Sham group reportedly started to set up a command post near the Ahrar a Sham checkpoint in Bab al Hawa square only 300 meters away from the main gate of Bab al Hawa border crossing. In response Ahrar al Sham reinvigorated its positions in the region to block any possible attack by al Nusra terrorists.
In the meantime Tahrir al Sham took control of Ahrar al Sham checkpoints in al Mastoumeh and Kafr Yamhoul villages in Southern Idlib.
