The head of al-Qaeda-linked miltiant group Houras al-Din, Abu al-Bara al-Tunisi survived an assassination attempt in the city of Idlib on Marh 21. According to local sources, an IED exploded near a car waiting for the prominent terrorist. Nonetheless, the Houras al-Din leader was not targeted.

Earlier, this week Houras al-Din carried out an IED attack on a Turkish military convoy in the province of Idlib killing 2 Turkish soldiers. Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, Houras al-Din and other radical groups are not interested in the implementation of the Russian-Turkish safe zone deal on the M4 highway in any form. So, they are ready to carry out any actions, including attacks on Turkish forces (that in fact support them), to achieve this goal.
Some sources speculate that the assassination attempt was a response to the attack on Turkish troops.
