IDLIB, Syria – An inter-jihadist war is set to be unleashed in northern Syria in what has become a common occurrence.
The battle for power over the northwest province of Idlib and the neighboring countryside areas of Aleppo and Hama has been waging since a coalition of jihadists mobilized in Turkey and took over the province from the Syrian Army in early 2015.
Since the success of the jihadist coalition, they have been engulfed in infighting that resembles what has occurred in Libya since the jihadist coalition murdered longtime ruler Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.
This latest fight is between Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra and Jabhat Tahrir Syria, the name given to the merger between Ahrar al-Sham and El-Zinki.
Footage was released yesterday and can be seen below that shows Al-Nusra entering western Aleppo countryside with tanks and artillery pieces in preparation for their battle against Jabhat Tahrir Syria.
