Aleppo - SMART

On Friday, civil and military bodies demanded the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) to leave the village of Sheikh Ali, west of Aleppo, Northern Syria, after its members attacked the demonstrators.

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

In a statement, the military, Shura and local councils, the Free Police, and dignitaries of the village of Sheikh Ali demanded the HTS to remove its checkpoint from the entrance to the village and to hand over its members who attacked the demonstrators to the military council and to disarm them.

The statement called for preventing any Free Syrian Army faction or the Islamic battalion from establishing a headquarters in the village. The statement also called for preventing any masked member or fighter from entering the village, stating that the military council will take the necessary measures if its demands are not met.

The civil and military bodies added that they would raise the Syrian revolution flag at the entrances to the village and its official institutions. They stated that the village does not belong to any government or military faction, and the local council is the only body that represents it.

This statement was issued after about 20 masked HTS' members with their military equipment attacked a demonstration in the village, and prevented the demonstrators from raising the revolution flag.

Earlier on Friday, thousands demonstrated in villages, cities, and towns of the governorate of Aleppo. They chanted slogans calling for the overthrow of the Syrian government.
