Field and local developments:

On Tuesday, Turkish authorities prevented the first convoy of internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Northern Homs from entering the areas of Euphrates Shield, after arriving at the Abu Zindeen crossing near the city of al-Bab, 38 kilometers east of Aleppo, Northern Syria.

Local activists told SMART that Free Syrian Army (FSA) factions backed by Turkey prevented the convoy from entering because it didn’t have approval from the Turkish authorities. The convoy includes 3,200 IDPs, most of them women and children. The IDPs suffer from difficult humanitarian conditions.

On Monday evening, the convoy of IDPs started to move after chaos and tension at the gathering place of people and fighters, who refuse to compromise with the Syrian government.

Earlier, al-Sultan Murad Brigades and the Suqour al-Jabal Brigade clashed in various parts of Northern Aleppo, as part of a new fighting between the FSA factions in Northern Syria.

The Negotiations Committee for northern Homs and southern Hama said that those wishing to return to their homes after the completion of the displacement process must apply to the Turkish government. The Committee stressed that no formula for the dissidents was reached.

Turkish officers have promised IDPs from Southern Damascus to transfer them to the Afrin area, 42 kilometers northwest of Aleppo, Northern Syria, after preparing shelters for them.

On Monday, unknown persons assassinated two members of the Turkestan Islamic Party, who hold Turkish citizenship, north of Idlib, Northern Syria.

Activists reported that the unknown shooter fired at the two men as they were passing by a motorcycle on the road between the towns of Hattan and Barisha (27 kilometers north of Idlib). The two members were then transferred to the police station of Qawarqiniah village. The persons who assassinated the two members haven’t been known so far.

On Monday, a group of journalists and media activists in Idlib, Northern Syria, issued a statement calling for the release of media activist Ahmed al-Akhras, who is detained by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

A statement issued by the Free Journalists Union in Idlib said that they demand the HTS to release al-Akhras immediately or issue an official statement explaining the details of his arrest. The journalists condemned the arrest of any media activist by any faction without giving reasons.

A source in the Kurdish Asayish forces said that they had arrested a robbery gang in the city of al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria. The gang includes members of the Shiite Baqir Brigade militia belonging to the Syrian government forces.

The source, who asked not to be identified, said that the gang consisted of two Iraqi members of the Baqir Brigade militia and nine Shiite people from the city.

A new United States offensive force began to launch raids on the Islamic State (ISIS) sites in Syria from the U.S. Navy bases in the Mediterranean.

Reuters quoted a statement by the U.S. Navy as saying that the warplanes began their flights to Syria from the eastern Mediterranean on May 3 against ISIS sites, which are unspecified.

On Monday night and Tuesday morning, the Russian Defense Ministry said that a military helicopter dropped in Eastern Syria, killing its pilots.

On Monday, the Syrian government forces allowed dozens of civilians, who were arrested before by it, to leave al-Yarmouk camp to the nearby town of Yilda, Southern Damascus.

The Working Group for the Palestinians of Syria said that the government forces allowed 60 civilians, most of them women, children and senior people, to leave Yarmouk camp to Yilda through the Oroba checkpoint, which it has recently seized.

On Monday, the Supreme Judicial Council in Horan, in the areas controlled by the military factions in Daraa, Southern Syria, issued a decision to prevent cars loaded with wheat from entering to areas controlled by the Syrian government.

According to a statement issued by the council, the cars will be confiscated and handed over to the Central Court in Horan to be transferred to grain silos, in case the drivers don’t apply the decision.

The Justice Court in Houran in Daraa, Southern Syria, also said that it removed a checkpoint that collects tax on large transport vehicles after the leaders of the Mahamid clan threatened to storm the checkpoint. The Mahamid clan belongs to the Bunian Marsous operations room and the Shura Council. However, the clan denied these threats.

The head of the Supreme Judicial Council in Horan, Ismat al-Absi, told SMART that the threat was from members of the Mahamid family, whose sons were involved in the case of planting explosive devices in the governorate. The danger aims to put pressure on the court to release them.

In Quneitra, military factions announced the formation of an executive force to chase the cells of the Lebanese Hezbollah militia, the Syrian government, and ISIS.

A group of volunteer football players in the city of Saraqib, 16 kilometers southeast of Idlib, Northern Syria, established a sports academy to teach football to children at beginner’s level.

On Sunday, the founder of the academy, Munther Ramadan, told SMART that more than 60 children divided into teams according to their age; there are teams for 6 to 9 year-olds and teams for 9 to 12 year-olds. The children are trained in the available facilities.
