Aleppo - SMART

On Monday, members of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) shot into the air to disperse a demonstration in the village of Abezmo, 15 kilometers west of Aleppo, Northern Syria.

HTS is an opposition group previously known as al-Nusra Front, consisting of fighting groups including the Haqq Brigade, Jabhat Ansar al-Deen, and Jaysh al-Sunnah.

Local activists told SMART that dozens of people started to demonstrate after the HTS entered the village of Abezmo. The village residents demanded that the HTS members leave and neutralize the village from the fighting with the Syrian Liberation Front. The activists added that no demonstrators were injured.

The Syrian Liberation Front is an opposition group formed by the two Sunni Islamist groups Ahrar al-Sham and the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement. HTS is the main rival of the Syrian Liberation Front in Northwestern Syria.

The activists added that the HTS and Syrian Liberation Front had promised not to enter the village, but the HTS violated the agreement.

The HTS and Syrian Liberation Front clashed in the western villages of the Aleppo countryside earlier on Monday, during HTS' attempts to advance in the region. The mutual shelling caused damage to civilian homes.

Yesterday, the Syrian Liberation Front gained control of a number of villages and towns in the western Aleppo countryside. The HTS returned to regain control of the town of Takad, but the people of Takad demonstrated and burned an armored vehicle in the middle of the town. After that, the HTS returned to fire on the demonstrators, which led to the injury of one of the demonstrators. A child was killed during the clashes.

The Syrian Liberation Front and HTS have been clashing in the countryside of Aleppo and Idlib since Feb. 20, killing and wounding civilians, in addition to blocking roads and paralyzing traffic and trade. The cities and towns of Aleppo and Idlib do not wish to be part of the infighting.
