Turkey - SMART

On Monday, the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) said that its members killed a high-ranking member of the Islamic State (ISIS) and arrested others in clashes in Western Idlib, Northern Syria, as part of a security campaign in the governorate.

The 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.

HTS media quoted the official of the security campaign as saying that its members attacked a secret camp that ISIS frequents in the vicinity of the city of Selqin, Western Idlib. The two parties clashed, killing an ISIS military trainer, arresting six others, and seizing weapons and explosive devices.
 
The official added that the detainees will be presented to the Islamic court to issue the appropriate verdict. He stated that on Monday morning, the HTS members disarmed an explosive device in the city of Jisr al-Shughur and a motorcycle bomb in the city of Dana.

Earlier on Monday, the HTS launched a campaign to target ISIS in Northern Idlib. The HTS imposed curfews in a number of areas because of the campaign.

On Saturday, May 19, the HTS security forces executed four people in the clock square in the center of Idlib city. A number of the city's residents attended the execution. The four people were accused of planting explosive devices and assassinations. The HTS arrested others on the same charges.

Explosive devices and car explosions occur daily in the Idlib governorate. The explosions have targeted, killed and wounded dozens of the commanders and fighters in the Free Syrian Army and Islamic factions. The perpetrators behind most of the explosions remain unknown.
