BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:55 P.M.) – The Islamist rebels once again clashed inside the East Ghouta region after Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a surprise attack on Jaysh Al-Islam’s positions.

According to opposition media, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham uncovered a Jaysh Al-Islam sleeper cell within the territory they control in the East Ghouta, prompting them to attack the latter and capture their fighters.

HTS stated that the captured fighters confessed that they were members of Jaysh Al-Islam and that they were hired to target the commanders of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham with IEDs in exchange for cash.

Jaysh Al-Islam and HTS strongly oppose one another, despite the fact they are both part of the rebel forces in Syria.
