Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) prevented female students from entering the cultural centre for wearing clothes that were "too bright". This has incited the wrath of the local population, who are no longer accepting HTS' abuses.
Clashes between the rebel groups, HTS and NLF, renewed in the Aleppo countryside. The clashes, which allegedly started after the HTS attempted to open a base in the NLF-held Kafr Hamra, have since spread to other areas.
The formerly al-Qaeda linked Hayy'at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) has recently lost its territory in the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp in southern Damascus. In Idlib, northwestern Syria, the militant group has consistently failed to achieve popular support.
