Increase in Jihadist attacks in Syria as Turkey courts Assad

Syrian jihadi groups are increasing their attacks on Syrian army outposts, as tripartite meetings between Russia, Turkey and Syria hint at a potential rapprochement deal to end the decade-long war.
Fighters affiliated with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham take part in a military excercise on attacking tactics with live ammunition, on the outskirts of Idlib, Syria, Nov. 8, 2022.

Jamaat al-Tawhid, an affiliate of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a designated terrorist group by the US and United Nations, confirmed to have raided several Syrian army posts on Wednesday.

The attacks were carried out in northwestern Syria, close to the border with Turkey.
