Russian Airstrike Kills Senior Al-Qaeda Commander In Western Aleppo

Support SouthFront

A senior military commander of al-Qaeda-affiliated Horas al-Din, one of the biggest terrorist groups in Greater Idlib, was killed in a Russian airstrike on February 12.

The airstrike reportedly targeted the commander known as Abu Yaqoub Kabul, while he was fighting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in western Aleppo. The terrorist may have been taking part in a Turkish-led attack.

Abu Yaqoub was the commander of Horas al-Din’s al-Muahideen Army, a large unit of Jihadists that mainly operates in the northern governorate of Aleppo. The al-Muahideen Army is one of the biggest formations of the terrorist group.

The exact origin of Abu Yaqoub were not revealed. However, his pseudo surname, Kabul, hints that he may be from the Afghan capital, or an al-Qaeda veteran who fought there.

Horas al-Din is considered close to the biggest al-Qaeda-affiliated group in greater Idlib, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). The terrorist group also maintains relations with Turkish-backed factions.

Hundreds of Jihadists from Horas al-Din and other terrorist groups were neutralized by the army during the last few months. The remaining terrorists are now desperately attempting to stop the army’s advance in Greater Idlib, taking advantage of the increasing Turkish military presence there.

Always good to see DNA like this removed from the Gene-Pool




Very true and very prevalent in ‘closed religions and monarchies’.


Time to drop some ammo on Erdogan head, CIA may help


The takfiris are better infantry than the Turk soldiers, more motivated and better payed. On the other hand, all the rest of the arms of the Turquish military haven’t any chance, including the Navy. It’s all Enver Pashas waiting to drop dead.
