New Wave Of Assassinations In Idlib Governorate

Via Baladi News

On May 3, four fighters of the Turkish-backed Sham Legion were killed and two others were injured when an IED hit their vehicle on the road between the city of Idlib and the town of Maarrat Misrin, according to the Syrian pro-opposition news outlet Baladi News.

No group has claimed responsibility for the assassination yet. However, Syrian opposition sources believe that ISIS cells may be behind the incident as the Sham Legion does not have any problems with any other group.

In a related development, a booby-trapped car exploded near the center of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in the town of al-Dana in the northern Idlib countryside. The Syrian pro-opposition news outlet Enab Baladi reported that six civilians had been killed and dozens others had been injured in the attack.

The main target of the attack was likely the IRC which works closely with the US government. This allowed some local activists to suggest that ISIS cells could be behind this incident.

More than 29 militants and civilians were killed in a wave of assassinations that hits Idlib governorate between April 26 and 30. According to Syrian opposition activists, these attacks are aimed at inflaming the internal fighting among the different armed groups in Idlib, especially between Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the Syrian Liberation Front (SLF).

Let me get this straight… an “NGO” that works closely with the US government operates freely in territory controlled by terrorist organizations. Nothing to see here. Move along.


Your talking about the “International Rescue Committee” ?
These are the Whiter that White Helmets rebrand name, do you like it ?


I heard they have CG Haloes.


Cut them a little slack, it is a big job trying to rescue a morally bankrupt empire with only the, wearing thin, CW false flag, to justify their presence in the country.

You can call me Al

I find that all very sad….

Seem like just the sorta fellas you could count on to form a non corrupt government. They get paid by the body count, it’s irrelevant who’s body. Similar to the way the US do their bombing runs, as long as there is a big boom everybody gets a check. Ok I exaggerated, ISIS and their oil trucks are a no go.


“Wave of assassinations?” A better term would be large scale gang war.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
