ALEPPO, Syria – ISIS terrorists operating on the Idlib axis (the border regions of Idlib, Aleppo and Hama province), have captured thirteen towns and villages from the Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra Front.
This spells bad news for the Al-Nusra Front has in the past two weeks the Syrian military has captured over 100 sites from the terrorist organization, and with ISIS now making an offensive, it could see the complete expulsion of the Al-Qaeda affiliates from this region of Syria.
The settlements captured by ISIS from their rival jihadists are Qasr Ibn Wardan, Al-Ablah, Jubb al-Safa, Qalaat al-Hawayis, Abb Qana, Al-Aqlah, Tal al-Halawah, Ad-Dalala, Jubb Othman, Tal al-Ruman, Al-Jaduayat, Aziziyah and Al-Tarfawi.
It remains unlikely that they will make a counterattack as they are simultaneously trying to contain the rapid and aggressive advancement of the Syrian Army in the southern countryside of Idlib province in Syria’s northwest.
