Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham Beheads Senior ISIS Commander In Idlib

Support SouthFront

On July 13, Anas al-Sheikh, a senior commander of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) security forces, told the HTS-linked news network Iba’a that the group managed to capture ISIS commander “Abu al-Bar’a al-Sahili” during a special operation in the town of Harem in northern Idlib countryside.

Only hours after his capture, al-Sahili was beheaded in a brutal way by HTS’ security forces. Al-Sheikh said that ISIS commander was executed in the same area where he beheaded a fighter of HTS last week. Al-Sahili is responsible for several attacks on the civilians and HTS fighters, according to al-Sheikh.

After the execution of al-Sahili, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq reported that ISIS cells killed four fighters of HTS in hit and run attacks near the towns of Sarmin and Maarrat al-Nu’man. These attacks are likely a response to HTS, especially that many ISIS sympathizers in the governorate of Idlib vowed to avenge al-Sahili.

In the upcoming days, ISIS fighters will likely step up their operations against HTS in northern Syria. This may lead to a dangerous situation in Idlib similar to the one we saw in the governorate of Deir Ezzor before the rise of ISIS in 2014.

Motto to this story is; don’t get caught.


That’s as they say the 11th commandment: Thou shall not get caught. And it applies to everything where you play fast and loose with the truth. And the law.

Possibly French as Sahili is a common surname it’s Turkic so ISIS guy was Turk.

Brother Ma

I always said most of ISIS were Turks. Where can i find proof of where the dog was from for sure?

You can call me Al

It means “Beach”, so a coastal Turk. Right, let’s find out his town, then street and so on.

Cool, we are detectives !!

PS I don’t mean to be facicious, I am amazed how we got this far (well you did).

Brother Ma

Yeah i wanted to drill down and get as much info on him as possible from people that may know; native arab or turk -speakers.

Brother Ma

Anyone know what sahili means in Arabic and where this bastard dog was from? In the end,Turk headchoppers kill Saudi headchoppers. So what?

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Azerbaijani means like bank or side for eg: cay sahili means river side or river bank deniz sahili coast or shore or littoral.

Brother Ma

Bravo brother! You should work for an intelligence agency if you already do not. Try and be on the side of Right though instead of dog headchoppers and zionatoyanquistan!

You can call me Al

Using Google Translate, I got…. sahili = Turkish = coast….. same as Terra really. Obviously I didn’t get all the surname stuff.

He helped you out, what the beef ?.

Brother Ma

I have no beef with Terracotta. I just complimented him! I was not being a smartass.


Don’t believe the narrative. Did they behead him or send him back to Tel Aviv? How come I have so much difficulty believing in a conflict between HTs and ISIS?

Brother Ma

I agree. They were pals until their paymasters had a lover’s quarrel.


Its all about check points and money! Follow the money!


New job opening in Idlib for ISIS.
No resume required, just show up for position and show you have talent with IED’s.

Brother Ma

And headchopoing innocent powerless women and children!


senior commander? He looks like a boy. What’s his rank, corporal?

You can call me Al

“Only hours after his capture, al-Sahili was beheaded in a brutal way by HTS’ security forces.”

Is there a lovely, huggy, jolly good way to behead someone ?.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Isn’t it typical. Even though they know the Russians and the SAA are coming, and they should have already kissed and made up, they haven’t, they’re still too busy fighting, so sad.
I think they’re both going to get caught with their pants down when Russia and the SAA come a knocking, or do I mean bombing. These retards thought they could run the country, LOL.

leon mc pilibin

Just a cover up for his safe return to israhell,,HQ of ISIS.
