[ALMASDARNEWS] The town of Salqin in northwestern Idlib countryside became a scene of infighting on Saturday, as heavy festivities erupted between jihadists of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS, Syrian al-Qaeda branch) and local residents.

The latter, in turn, carried their own guns which they had not hesitated to use, once jihadists began shooting.
As a result of violent firefight, at least 5 people have been confirmed dead, both among HTS and local civilians, with festivities still ongoing in Salqin.
