The General Security directorate of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) announced on September 26 that it had eliminated a senior ISIS Leader in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

In a statement, the General Security said the leader, Youssef Noman Abd Naif al-Jubori, and his guard, Sami Jasim Mohamad Abdullah al-Jubori, were killed in a “security operation” in western Idlib.

Hassan Hassan, a director at the Washington-based Center for Global Policy, revealed that Noman, known by his nom de guerre “Abu al-Harith,” and his guard, who is also known as “Haji Hamed” and “Sami al-Ajouz,” were both working as couriers and coordinators for ISIS between Syria and Iraq.

Abu al-Harith is the brother of Mutaz Abd Naif Noman, “Haji Tayseer,” a member of ISIS’ Delegated Committed and the former Iraq “Wali.”

HTS, originally Known as the al-Nusra Front, was ISIS’ main branch in Syria. In 2014, al-Nusra, led by Abu Mohamad al-Julani, defected from ISIS in response to Abu Baker al-Baghdad’s declaration of the “Caliphate.”

The two terrorist groups have been involved in a war of attrition since then, despite adopting the same radical ideology and political goals.
