Syrian Army Eliminated Senior Militant Commander In Greater Idlib


On October 8, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) eliminated a commander of Turkish-backed militants in the northwestern region of Greater Idlib.

Opposition sources said the commander, Nowruz al-Hamdo, was killed in a rocket strike by the army on his hometown, Kansafra in the southern countryside of Idlib. Members of al-Hamdo’s family were reportedly injured in the strike.

Al-Hamdo, who is known by his nom de guerre “Abu Haidara,” was a senior military commander of the Mountain Hawks Brigade.

The faction is a part of the National Front for Liberation, a Turkish-backed coalition based in Greater Idlib. The coalition is allied to Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham and many other al-Qaeda-affiliated groups in the framework of the al-Fateh al-Mubeen Operations Room.

The elimination of al-Hamdo is a blow to Turkish-backed factions in Greater Idlib and a response to their violations of the March 5 Russian-Turkish agreement.

The situation in Greater Idlib is stable. However, this may change soon as Turkey is failing to honor its commitments under the March 5 agreement, under which all terrorists should be removed from the region.
