Idlib - SMART

On Saturday, an official of the a-l Sham Legion of the Free Syrian Army said that Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the Syrian Liberation Front reached a one-week ceasefire agreement.   

 Al-Sham Legion's Chief of Sharia, "Omar Hozaifah," posted on his official Twitter account that the agreement begins midnight Friday -Saturday and the HTS and the Syrian Liberation Front will discuss unresolved cases.  

Earlier, al-Sham legion interceded for stopping the infighting between the two parties, but its initiative did not succeed.  

The agreement came as a Turkish military convoy entered Northern Hama to establish a supervision point.  

Before this agreement, several agreements failed to be executed, as each party blamed the other for this failure.  

On Thursday, the HTS declared that the fighting would not stop until they retrieve the areas that the Syrian Liberation Front and the Soqur al-Sham Legion gained control of earlier.   

On Friday, HTS and the Syrian Liberation Front clashed after a relatively calm period. The clashes and bombing injured civilians and forced mosques in several towns to suspend Friday prayers.
