Seizing the city of Ariha makes the province of Idlib almost entirely out of the regime’s control

Idlib Province: The violent clashes between al- Fateh Army, which consists of Jabhat al- Nusra, Jund al- Aqsa, Ahrar al- Sham Movement, Jaysh al- Sunnah, al- Sham Legion, al- Haq Brigade and Ajnad al- Sham, and the members of the regime forces who run away from the city of Ariha seized by al- Fateh Army hours ago. Information reported that al- Fateh Army’s fighters have advance and seized some areas around Ariha. After seizing the city of Ariha, the province of Idlib has become almost entirely the second province out of the regime control, where al- Fateh Army seized the city of Jeser al- Shagour in April 25, and the city of Idlib in March 28.


It is noted that the province of al- Raqqa was the first province that has become out of the regime’s control after IS has seized the airbase of al- Tabaqa in August 2014.
