Militants in the Idlib province have begun protesting the surrender of Aleppo to the Syrian government. Members of various armed gangs and elders from the town of Daret al-Issa bordering the western part of the Aleppo province have issued an ultimatum to the terrorist groups Jebhat Fatah-ash-Sham (formerly Jebhat Al-Nusra) and Ahrar Ash-Sham.
The terrorists have demanded that these influential gangs begin the urgent process of merging into single group within a period of 15 days following the publication of the manifesto. If the leaders refuse, then the gangs located in the town of Daret al-Issa will declare their autonomy and the city will come under the “jurisdiction” of the “Gathering of Theologians of Sham.”
The authors of the ultimatum have urged militants in different areas to join their initiative. Militants from the armed “opposition”, together with their supporters, have blocked the highway from Batbo to the border crossing of Bab al-Hava in the northern part of Idlib and have burned tires. Subsequently, they tried to take by storm the nearby Turkish-Syrian border checkpoint. The main route for the delivery of assistance from Turkey to Idlib runs through the Bab al-Hava checkpoint.
Through such actions, local jihadists seek to push the leaders of the largest armed formations to unite with the common aim of fighting against the Syrian government.
