Aleppo - SMART

The commander of the al-Sharqiyah Martyrs faction, Abu Khawla, escaped from the city of Afrin, 43 kilometers north of Aleppo, to the Idlib governorate in Northern Syria.

A private source reported that Abu Khawla escaped alone after the faction reached an agreement that called Abu Khawla and his fighters to surrender to a military court. The source did not determine the exact new location of Abu Khawla.

On Monday, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) reached a ceasefire agreement with the al-Sharqiyah Martyrs faction in the city of Afrin, 43 kilometers north of Aleppo, after the National Army of the FSA launched a security campaign earlier.

The source added that another commander in the al-Sharqiyah Martyrs faction also escaped after the agreement, assuming that he headed for Idlib, too.

The source said that after the two commanders' escape, about 400 fighters from the al-Sharqiyah Martyrs escaped when National Army members left to get vehicles to transport the fighters to the military police.

The National Army factions gained control of the al-Sharqiyah Martyrs' headquarters in the Villa Street in Afrin amidst ongoing clashes to gain control of the remaining headquarters. The National Army faction suspended the clashes for a short period in order to evacuate families from the area.

On Sunday, the FSA launched a security campaign against the al-Sharqiyah Martyrs faction and imposed a curfew in Afrin. Clashes between both parties killed three National Army fighters and injured others, in addition to injuring at least six civilians, one of whom is in a critical condition.
