    Tahrir al-Sham launches attack against ISIS in Daraa: sources

    (Zaman Al Wasl)- Six rebel factions led by former al-Qaeda group have launched assault on an ISIS affiliated group in southern Daraa province, field sources said on Thursday.

    Tahrir al-Sham alliance backed by Ahrar al-Sham and four armed groups is seeking to defeat Jaysh Khaled Ibn al-Walid group and to break the siege imposed on the village of Hait as well to take village of Jellin and its camp in the western countryside.

    Khaled Ibn al-Walid group, which pledged allegiance to the Islamic State three years ago, has attacked rebels bastions several times near Yarmouk basin.

    Tahrir al-Sham, in statement issued Monday, accused ISIS of committing crimes against the Sunnis, major offshoot of Islam, as well killing Mujahideen- the Jihadists- in Raqqa, Deir Ezzor and other opposition-held areas. 

    The statement followed a surprise attack by the Islamic State on Tahrir al-Sham's territory in the eastern countryside of Hama.

    Amaq, ISIS news agency said the Islamic State has seized control of 13 villages, adding that clashes are still underway.

    Tahrir al-Sham has mourned four fighters, saying the attack was plotted by the regime forces which facilitated the ISIS assault.
