Aleppo | Military Police clash with Ahrar Al-Sham faction in Jarablus city over arresting drug promoters

Aleppo province: On Saturday evening, clashes with light and medium machine guns erupted between a Military Police group and members of Ahrar Al-Sham faction on the outskirts of Jarablus city, east of Aleppo, in areas under the control of Euphrates Shield Operations Room factions.

These clashes erupted over the arrest of four young men by the military police for “promoting and trafficking drugs and cannabis.”

These clashes led to damage to the electricity grid and left no casualties.
