Prominent "Emir" Of Ajnad Al-Kavkaz Killed By Syrian Army In Northern Hama

Mansour Dagestani, a prominent “Emir” of foreign terrorists in Syria, was killed by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Hama, al-Qaeda-affiliated Caucasus Islamic Emirate and Ajnad al-Kavkaz (AK) announced on May 22.

Syrian opposition sources revealed that Mansour, a Dagestani citizen, was leading the al-Muhajireen wal-Ansar Brigade of the AK.

The AK has more than 1,000 forgiven fighters in Syria, mainly from Russia and ex-Soviet states. Most of these fighters are reportedly stationed in the city of Jisr al-Shughur in the northwestern part of Idlib.

The terrorist group, which is believed to be led by Abu Bakr Shishani, is known for its close ties with Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the former branch of al-Qaeda in Syria.

Mansour Dagestani was likely killed while he was taking part in the recent, HTS-led, offensive on the key town of Kafr Nabudah. The terrorists manged to captur the town. However, they apparently suffered from heavy loses.
