Tens of Al-Nusra Terrorists Join ISIL in Syria’s Aleppo

Tens of fighters of the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) have joined the ISIL terrorist group amid the Syrian Army advances in Southern Aleppo, dissident-affiliated websites reported on Friday.

The news websites reported that a sum of 60 terrorists of Al-Nusra have joined ISIL after the Al-Nusra suffered heavy defeats in recent clashes with the army men in Southern Aleppo.

The websites further said that most of the defected members were Al-Nusra fighters in Badiyeh (desert) or former members of Jund al-Aqsa that came under siege of the army men in Southern Aleppo.

In the meantime, a large number of Al-Nusra terrorists have escaped from their positions in Southern Aleppo and joined their comrades near the Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Southeastern Idlib.

Relevant reports said on Wednesday that the army troops stormed terrorists’ positions in Southern Aleppo and managed to impose control over 2 more regions in their push towards Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Southeastern Idlib.

The army men pushed the Al-Nusra Front and its militant allies back from the village of Maseh and Tal (hill) Maseh West of the small town of al-Zaman in Southern Aleppo.

The army’s engineering units have started defusing bombs and landmines in the newly-freed regions.

The army is trying hard to access and liberate Abu al-Dhohour airbase in Southeastern Idlib via activating different fronts, including Southern Aleppo flank.
