On September 20th, an explosion was reported in on the highway between the cities of Idlib and Binnish.
A car that reportedly was a Kia Rio was destroyed as a result of the combat drone attack. An American MQ-9 attack UAV was spotted over the area at the time of attack.
According to local sources, the strike resulted in several casualties and the car burned out.
According to some unconfirmed reports, the drone strike might target two leaders of al-Qaeda-linked Houras al-Din militant group, sheikh Abu al-Bar’a al-Tunisi and military commander Abu Hamzah al-Yamani.
Both of them were previously targeted by failed assassination attempts. Abu al-Bara al-Tunisi survived an assassination attempt in the city of Idlib on Marh 21, 2020. In his turn, Abu Hamzah al-Yamani was allegedly targeted by a US drone in Idlib city on September 14 2020.
If the reports about the assassination of Abu al-Bar’a al-Tunisi and Abu Hamzah al-Yamani turn to be true, this would be a significant success of the US-led international coalition in their attempt to support another Al-Qaeda-affiliated group of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, as Houras al-Din is one of their opponents in Syria’s Idlib.
