Syria, battle between pro-Turkey militias in Aleppo for commercial streets

Syria, battle between pro-Turkey militias in Aleppo for commercial streets. Liwaa Shamar, controlled by the al-Hamza Division, clashed with al-Jabha al-Shamiya and Ahrar al-Sham al-Islamiyah in al-Sokariyah

New chapter of the internal war between pro-Turkish militias in northern Syria. East of Aleppo there was a violent battle between Liwaa Shamar, controlled by the al-Hamza Division, who confronted al-Jabha al-Shamiya and Ahrar al-Sham al-Islamiyah in al-Sokariyah, near al- Bab. At the center of the dispute is the road that crosses the town and leads to the quadrant under the jurisdiction of the Damascus army (SAA). This is considered strategic as most of the commercial traffic passes through it. Consequently, those who control it can reap great economic benefits. The clash, in fact, was born precisely for this reason. The minor factions operating in the area are increasingly poor, as Ankara has cut aid, and are no longer able to pay wages to the fighters. Therefore, they are more and more willing to gamble everything in order not to lose weight, even by preying on each other.
