FaylaqClashes erupted in the rebel stronghold of Erbeen when fighters loyal to Hayat Tahrir al Sham attacked Faylaq al Rahman’s positions.

According to local sources, HTS units attacked Faylaq al Rahman military base in Erbeen town in a bid to capture some defectors.

In response, Faylaq immediately established checkpoints across the town in an attempt to arrest and stop all retreating HTS elements in the region.

This development is a major shift in the traditional alliances and spheres of influence as Faylaq and HTS had been engaged in a pragmatic alliance to counter Jaysh al Islam’s aggressions since 2013.
