Latakia:

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and Jaysh al-Ahrar reached an agreement regarding the latter’s handover of several checkpoints to the former near the border with Turkey. Jaysh al-Ahrar will hand over Al-Mantara, Haniya, and Al-Zuf checkpoints to Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, as well as allow the Syrian Salvation Government to govern areas under the group’s control. However, the agreement excludes Taftanaz in Idlib, as the locality’s Shura council rejects the authority (existence) of both the Syrian Salvation Government and the Syrian Interim Government.
