On Monday’s night and Tuesday’ s morning, the opposition faction Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) handed the al-Sham Legion faction a checkpoint after the HTS gained control of the checkpoint for hours in the Afrin area in Aleppo, Northern Syria.

A source, who is close to the al-Qaryatain Martyrs Brigade in the al-Rukban camp near the Jordanian border, 237 kilometers southeast of Homs, reported that the Syrian government forces delay the brigade’s fighters evacuation along with civilians for Northern Syria.

The Syrian government forces released a girl from the city of Daraa after a day of arrest as an FSA commander threatened to stir demonstrations to demand the girl's release.

In recent weeks, the prices of rents scored a remarkable increase in the city of al-Tal, which is controlled by the Syrian government forces in Rif Dimashq, forcing the FDP to return to their nearby cities and towns.
