Tahrir Al-Sham Claims Arrest Of Hezbollah-Affiliated Group In Idlib
A spokesperson for the security department of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, commonly referred to as Tahrir al-Sham, has claimed that their militants have successfully identified and arrested a group affiliated to Hezbollah in Syria’s Idlib Governorate.
Zia Omar alleges that that arrested group had previously worked for the Syrian intelligence agency and later for the Russian intelligence agency, and recently for the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement.
That group was focused on identifying terrorist hideouts and government facilities, as well as planning assassination of certain terrorists in the outskirts of Idlib and northern Aleppo governorates.
Dissatisfaction with Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham’s recent actions have been mounted, and it is not improbable that the activities of opponents, who are illegitimate in the eyes of terrorists such as Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, can be attributed to factions such as Hezbollah.
It should be noted that the Al-Qurba sect had previously warned against attributing the activities of the group to the ISIS group by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham.
It appears that attributing the activities of protesters to groups such as Hezbollah may be an attempt to alleviate the crisis situation in areas under Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham’s control.
