TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The activists reported that commanders of Nouralddeen al-Zinki movement, Jeish al-Ahrar and Ahrar al-Sham held a meeting aimed at forming a military coalition to face Al-Nusra's plan for annihilation of other rival groups in Idlib and Aleppo province to capture the entire militant-held regions in the two provinces.
Local sources reported that Al-Nusra terrorists stormed al-Zinki's positions in Ratyan region in Northern Aleppo, seizing al-Zinki fighters' weapons and expelling them from the region.
In the meantime, Al-Nusra arrested a number of al-Zinki fighters in Atmah and al-Dana region in Northern Idlib.
The sources further said that Al-Nusra attacked al-Zinki's command posts and checkpoints in the villages of al-Abzamou, 111th Regiment base, Sheikh Salman, Kafr Naha and Khan al-Asal in Western Aleppo, taking control of al-Abzamou.
Al-Zinki has put its forces on alert in most regions in Western Aleppo following the Al-Nusra attacks.
Relevant reports said on Friday that the Al-Zinki militants accused Al-Nusra of firing a large number of mortar shells and missiles towards the villages of Al-Sheikh Sleiman and Qabtan Al-Jabal in Western Aleppo.
Some reports indicated that there were firefights between the two terrorist groups.
Tensions between the two groups began earlier this year after they both surrendered the Eastern part of the provincial capital to the Syrian government.
