According to reports, the killed Hayat Tahrir al-Sham member was Abu Bark Halyabi, a local Sharia judge of the terrorist group.
The incident happened amid the growing tensions between Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other Turkish-backed groups over the situation along the M4 highway in southern Idlib.
On April 13, Turkish forces clashed with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham supporters in the area and removed their improvised camp east of Nayarab in order to allow at least limited joint Russian-Turkish patrols agreed in the framework of the Moscow de-escalation deal.
