Aleppo, SMART

On Saturday, loyalist forces gained control of the town of Tal al-Daman, 45 km south of Aleppo, in addition to twenty villages in the area after clashes with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). The HTS has been accused of withdrawing in favor of the loyalist forces. Hayat Tahrir al-Sham is a military entity that was formed on January 28, 2017, and consists of military fighting groups.

Loyalist media outlets said that loyalist forces gained control of Tal al-Daman, Southern Aleppo. Activists confirmed that HTS withdrew from the town as well as other villages in the area amidst the loyalist forces' continued advance.

Local activists said that loyalist forces have gained control of 36 villages and towns in the Jabal al-Hus area, Southern Aleppo, since HTS withdrew yesterday.

Activists from Southern Aleppo issued a statement to accusing HTS of withdrawing from the villages and towns of Jabal al-Hus, withdrawing fighters and heavy weapons from the frontlines as well as not sending reinforcements despite the presence of affiliated fighters in the area.

The activists said in the statement that HTS' withdrawal eased the loyalist forces’ advance into the area, adding that HTS media outlets stated that their fighters gained control of Jabal al-Hus on Friday. On hearing that, fighters returned to the area in which loyalist forces captured and executed two of them, according to the statement.

On Friday, loyalist forces and supporting militias gained control of 19 villages in Jabal al-Hus, Southern Aleppo in Northern Syria after HTS withdrew due to fears of being besieged. 

The continuous withdrawal of HTS from areas in Southern Aleppo coincides with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Islamist battalions’ large-scale advance in Southern Idlib as a part of two battles against loyalist forces. The opposition's factions participate in the battle.
