A prominent commander of the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) was assassinated in the occupied area of Afrin in northern Aleppo on June 2.

The pro-opposition Enab Baladi news outlet said that Fawaz Yusuf al-Sheikh was killed with an improvised-explosive device (IED) that had been planted under his car. The incident took place in the district of Jindires.

Fawaz Yusuf al-Sheikh

Al-Sheikh was reportedly the commander of Jaysh al-Nasir anti-aircraft battalion. The group is one of the key members of the NFL coalition, which was formed last year.

Pro-opposition sources said that the assassination was likely carried out by ISIS cells, Kurdish forces or even the Syrian intelligence.

The NFL, including Jaysh al-Nasir, supported the recent attacks on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Hama. The coalition’s anti-aircraft and anti-tank battalions provided fire support for Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and several al-Qaeda-affiliated groups.

          There is an internal consistency in your comment. Might it be a foul mouth? I am open to other suggestions.

        Russia has a longstanding relationship with Syria – and has long leased a naval facility on Syria’s Mediterranean coast – Russia was formally invited by the Syrian government – who maintain their seat at UN – to assist fighting a NATO and Gulf State sponsored terrorist insurgency ravaging the country. Meanwhile, rather logically, the US and its NATO playthings were not invited to assist, given they sponsor the actual terrorist insurgency, and entered Syria illegally as aggressive occupiers. It’s all really that simple.
