Six armed opposition groups on Saturday joined ranks to form a new grouping in Syria.
The umbrella group brings together Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (JFS), Nour al-Din al-Zenki movement, Liwa al-Haq, Jabhat Ansar al-Din, Jaysh al-Sunna, and Mujahido Ashiddaa, according to a statement released by the six groups.
The move came a few days after JFS, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, launched a military campaign against opposition factions that took place in last week's peace talks with the Syrian regime in Astana.
The Hai’at Tahrir al-Sham grouping will be chaired by Hashim al-Sheikh, who is also known as “Abu Jaber”, who had served as the commanding general of the Ahrar al-Sham group.
No details are yet available about the military lineup of the new body.
Syria has been locked in a devastating civil war since early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.Güncelleme Tarihi: 29 Ocak 2017, 12:31
