HTS opens fire on people protesting the opening of commercial crossing with regime, killing one person and injuring many others in rural Aleppo
SOHR sources say that a civilian died of injuries sustained, after being shot today by the security forces of Hayyat Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS), during participation in protests against the opening of a crossing with the regime. Thus, he became the first civilian who killed refusing to open the commercial crossing between HTS and regime-controlled areas.
Vehicles belonging to Hayyaat Tahrir Al-Sham had run over protesters opposing the opening of commercial crossing with areas under the control of the Syrian regime in Maarrat Al-Na’saan in the western countryside of Aleppo. HTS affiliates also opened fire on the protesters indiscriminately leaving five people injured.
Meanwhile, commercial trucks have crossed from regime-held areas to areas under the control of Hayyaat Tahrir Al-Sham and opposition factions via the Al-Na’saan-Miznaz commercial crossing in western countryside of Aleppo, officially opened by HTS.
On the other hand, tens of people, opposing the opening of commercial crossing with the Syrian regime, have gathered in the area, in order to prevent the trucks from entering areas controlled by HTS and rebel factions.
Syrian Observatory activists reported earlier this after that tens of residents from Maarrat Al-Na’ssan town and countryside gathered on the road to Miznaz town in the western countryside of Aleppo, blocking the way of trucks heading to the commercial crossing
