A new military operation room, under discussion, will be supported by the “Friends of Syria” – a coalition of the US, Turkey, Western European and Gulf states – which have supported the Northern Front’s operations room
The new military alliance of rebel groups in northern Syria aims to consolidate military control over Idlib province, the western part of Aleppo province and parts of Latakia province.
According to one Free Syrian Army (FSA) commander, the rebel forces will fight against the Syrian regime in northern Syria. He denied media reports that their goal would be to attack Hay’at Tahrir al Sham, a jihadi alliance dominated by Jabhat Fatah al Sham (formerly known as al-Nusra Front).
The FSA commander also confirmed that the funding and logistical support for rebel factions in northern Syria which the CIA froze in February have been restored to a certain extent.
