Jaish al-Ahrar leaves Tahrir al-Sham alliance: statement
(Zaman Al Wasl)- Jaish al-Ahrar on Thursday has defected from the powerful Tahrir al-Sham group over mounted abuses by the former al-Qaeda group in Syria, the key rebel faction said in statement.

The new defection followed the withdrawal of the ultraconservative Ahrar al-Sham and Nour ed-Din al-Zinki movements form the Islamist alliance that controlled the northern Idlib province.

Idlib is one of the most important strongholds of rebels, including jihadist factions, who seek to overthrow Bashar al-Assad.

Activists and moderate rebel groups have accused Tahrir al-Sham of uprooting rival groups which oppose its dominance policy, saying the Syrian people have uprised against  totalitarian regime and will not accept another one.

The peaceful demonstrations that ended up with deadly war carried out by the Syrian regime and key regional players has killed at least 470,000 people, including 150,000 children and has displaced over 12 million people.
