Late on July 10, head of one of ISIS’ main cells in the southern Syrian governorate of Daraa known as Tahir al-Masri was assassinated.

According to local sources, al-Masri was traveling on a road between the towns of Elemtaih and al-Taebah in eastern Daraa when he was stopped by several gunmen. The terrorist was executed on the spot. The gunmen also burned his corpse.

Syria 24 revealed that al-Masri, originally from the town of Om Elmiathin in eastern Daraa, was one of ISIS’ prominent security commanders in the southern region.

“Tahir was a prominent commander of ISIS, he was the leader of one of the security cells which are taking shelter in the area of al-Nakhlah south of Daraa city,” the pro-opposition outlet’s reporter said.

Following the assassination of al-Masri, ISIS terrorists attacked a unit of the Military Intelligence Directorate near Elmtaih. Heavy clashes broke out. However, no losses were reported.

The assassination of al-Masri was most likely a security operation by the Syrian intelligence, or an act of revenge by local fighters. In the last few months, ISIS cells killed many Syrian service members and locals in Daraa.
