Aleppo, SMART

On Friday, al-Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) mobilized an enormous military convoy to the village of al-Jina, Western Aleppo, to storm al-Atareb (25 kilometers west of Aleppo,) Northern Syria. Residents of al-Atareb raised alarm and local mosques called upon residents to head towards roads to repel the HTS convoy.    

Activists reported that the HTS mobilized 1500 fighters in al-Jina to storm al-Atareb. A video, seen by SMART, showed a 30- vehicles convoy of HTS fighters. The convoy included five vehicles loaded with heavy machine guns, and two tanks. The convoy roamed the main road of al-Jina.

On Thursday night and Friday morning, the dignitaries of al-Atareb met representatives of HTS to discuss the situation in the city. The dignitaries agreed on disallowing the HTS convoy to pass. The meeting coincided with residents raising alarm in al-Atareb.

On Friday, HTS seized the villages of Batabou, Kafr Naseh, Babka, al-Jina, and Abin, Western Aleppo after members of the Syrian Liberation Front withdrew. On Thursday HTS seized al-Tawama, Kafr Halap, the adjacent al-Quntar checkpoint, Miznaz, and Rif al-Muhandisin neighborhood near Kafr Joum.

Activists in the area circulated the names of five members of Syrian Liberation Front, including three from al-Atareb and two from al-Abzimo. The activists said that HTS executed the members after capturing them while seizing al-Tawama.

Clashes between HTS and Syrian Liberation Front have been waging over ten days in the countrysides of Aleppo and Idlib, killing and injuring civilians as well as disabling traffic and trade. HTS advanced in Idlib,amidst popular protests against it and leader Abu Muhammad al-Jawlani, as well as calls to neutralize civilians from infighting.
