HIJAB: OPPOSITION SUPPORTS TURKISH MILITARY INTERVENTION AGAINST HTS

00
The General Coordinator of the High Negotiations Committee, Riyad Hijab, announced that the Syrian opposition supports any Turkish military action against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) group in Idlib province.

In an interview to Al-Jazira channel Hijab said that the opposition “wants to get rid of Al-Qaeda”, adding that “only the Syrian government benefits from the group’s existence”.

This statement came after HTS has overwhelmed smaller groups in Idlib province and defeated its main rival, Ahrar al-Sham movement, establishing total control over the province, which shares a border with Turkey. The Turkish authorities have repeatedly expressed concern over the situation and threatened to launch a military operation against HTS on the Syrian territory.
