NATO-sponsored Al Qaeda Levant terrorist group is rapidly and constantly expanding its consolidated control of territories in northern Syria under the protection of the Turkish army.
Al Qaeda Levant (aka Nusra Front, Jabhat Nusra, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham) is being supported by its NATO sponsors to become the dominant force on the account of smaller terrorist groups in the region in the continuous attempts of whitewashing its terrorist branding and its war crimes and to seek future leverage for it in Syria’s political future.
The latest advances of Al Qaeda Levant was in the city of al-Bab in the northern Aleppo countryside on the account of its smaller rival a so-called National Army, both operate under the wing of their regional ultimate political leader the Turkish madman Erdogan with Al Qaeda Levant (Nusra Front) receiving aid from other countries as well including Saudi Arabia.
Dima Nassif’s report for the Lebanese news channel Al Mayadeen sheds more light:
Al Jolani’s gunmen parading tanks they looted from the National Army faction, a few hours after Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS – Al Qaeda Levant) managed to penetrate points in the northern countryside of Aleppo.
These tanks were stored for tyranny against the Mujahideen Muslims, and yesterday HTS succeeded in liberating them.
It was hidden in the middle of the fighting between the factions of the Third Legion of the Turkish-backed National Army.
Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham not only plundered tanks and weapons, but also succeeded in dispersing the factions that Ankara bet on and support, and in demonstrating the fragility of their integration, even the withdrawal that followed HTS’s takeover of Afrin countryside two months ago was by a Turkish order in which al-Jolani expressed his good intentions with Ankara in an effort to win its favor.
With the recurring collapse of the National Army factions, claims of building moderate groups that face terrorist others and are able to protect the Astana track and the Turkish observation posts are in vain.
The front of internal disputes and the conflicts over the crossings drain the factions of the National Army and unite them in defeat against al-Jolani. The groups of the Third Legion, Thai’roon, and Sultan Murad exchanged their split operations after fighting at the Abu al-Zandin crossing in the city of al-Bab in the northern countryside of Aleppo.
On the other hand, al-Jolani penetrated the Third Legion front, north of Aleppo, after supporting the Ahrar al-Sham groups, which split from the Levant Front.
Al-Jolani pushes to increase this tension and to continue fighting and participating in it, paving the way for his return again to the Abu al-Zandin crossing and the northern countryside of Aleppo.
Reaching the crossings in anticipation of the implementation of a leaked decision of an imminent opening of the crossings between the Syrian state and the areas of armed groups under Turkish-Russian supervision is at the top of Al-Jolani’s priorities, taking advantage of the recent fighting to show his faction unified in the decision and reference first, and in response to the Turkish demand to remove the barriers between Saraqib and Sarmin in preparation for the re-work crossing.

End of the transcript.
Whatever the Turkish madman Erdogan and his fellow NATO member states and regional stooges plan for their continuous sponsorship of terrorism in Syria will not only fail to achieve its goals, it will continue to backfire on them in many aspects, the least of which is their economic situation. Financing terrorist groups with tens of thousands of members is very costly and always, and when these terrorists are defeated, they go back home to roost.
