Informed sources told the Arabic-language Hadas News website that they have corroborative evidence indicating that Ahrar al-Sham terrorists intend to launch a false-flag operation in civilian areas to accuse the Syrian government of launching chemical attacks on the country’s civilian population.
They said Ahrar al-Sham has hidden phosphorous munitions in the Northern part of the city of Saraqib in Idlib province, some 20 kilometers from the city of Idlib.
On Tuesday, nearly 70 members of Fatah al-Sham Front (the newly-formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) defected the terrorist group in Southern Idlib.
The militants were trying to flee towards the Eastern parts of Hama to join the ISIL but they were arrested by Fatah al-Sham security forces in Southern Idlib and were transferred to prison, field sources said on Tuesday.
On Saturday, the Syrian military aircraft dropped leaflets over the terrorist-held regions in Idlib province, calling on the militants to surrender or wait for the army’s massive attacks soon.
The Syrian army aircraft dropped leaflets reading “Surrender Now” over Jisr al-Shoghour city to give the Takfiri terrorists a last chance to lay down their arms and surrender to the authorities.
Military sources said that hundreds of leaflets have been dropped over Jisr al-Shoghour for several times now.
Reports said on Friday that the Syrian fighter jets pounded the strongholds of Fatah al-Sham in Southern Idlib, destroying the infrastructures of the militants’ sites in large scale.
Syrian warplanes bombed Fatah al-Sham’s positions in al-Tamana and Khan Seikhoun, inflicting dozens of casualties on the militants and destroying their equipment and weapons.
