Idlib province- Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
SOHR eyewitnesses say that a civilian was killed and others were injured in Armanaz town in Idlib countryside, following clashes between civilians, including members of Tahrir Al-Sham.
According to Observatory sources, a security official of HTS opened fire indiscriminately on a young man from the city during a scuffle between them, seriously injuring one person, then died of injuries sustained.
In the meantime, members of HTS have deployed in the city of Armanaz, amid reports suggested that a security column belonging to Tahrir al-Sham arrived in the city to contain the situation.
The Syrian Observatory has documented the death of a civilian in the town of Benish of his injuries sustained on September 15, after being targeted by Turkish post soldiers while he was on his land late at night.
It is worth nothing that the Syrian Observatory said earlier that the Turkish post in the town of Benish is adjacent to the civilian land, and he was prevented by Turkish forces from entering it.
