The Syrian Army’s recent victories across the country have intensified internal differences among the ranks of the militant groups, specially among the Ahrar al-Sham’ leaders that have lost three senior commanders as a result of infightings in recent weeks, intelligence sources said Sunday.
“Mohammad Abu Yihiya, one of the leaders of Ahrar al-Sham, and Abu Tamim another commander of the terrorist group in Jarjanaz town in Idlib province have been killed as a result of infightings,” the sources said.
Meantime, Takfiri terrorists previously acknowledged that the military commander of Ahrar al-Sham Abdul-Qader al-Dabaan was killed.
Reports said on Thursday that heavy battles erupted between Takfiri terrorists from Jeish al-Islam and Jeish Tahrir al-Sham groups in Damascus province as militants continue to lose ground in Syria.
Terrorists from Jeish al-Islam engaged in fierce clashes with Jeish Tahrir al-Sham terrorists in al-Damir city in Damascus countryside, informed sources said.
