Syrian Army Snipers Hunted Down Elite Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham Sniper In Greater Idlib

Slain militant Hassan Khalid Rahal aka “Abu Adnan,” Click to see full-size image.

On August 11, an elite sniper of al-Qaeda-linked Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib, was hunted down by snipers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

The sniper, identified as Hassan Khalid Rahal, was shot and killed by snipers of the SAA in the al-Zawiya Mount in the southern part of Greater Idlib.

Rahal, known by his nom de guerre “Abu Adana,” is from the town of Ma’ar Shimmareen which is currently held by the SAA. The slain militant was reportedly an elite sniper of HTS’ Abu Baker al-Siddiq Brigade.

HTS snipers stepped up their attacks in the last few months. The SAA responded by deploying its own snipers on Greater Idlib frontlines.

Last week, two militants of HTS’ Abu Baker al-Siddiq Brigade were killed by SAA snipers on one of al-Zawiyah Mount frontlines. One of the slain militants was a Maldivian national.

HTS and its allies in the al-Fateh al-Mubeen Operation room violate the ceasefire in Greater Idlib, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey last year, on a daily basis. The SAA and its allies have been responding to these violations via various means. Yet, the militants are not stepping back.

Wonder who trained the Rat sniper,as if we didn’t know.

farbat

do you call your own security forces rats when they hunt down terrorists or do you call the terrorist a rat and ask about him?

To clarify: ‘Cromwell’ post above is calling out the al-Sham terror member as the rat. It then implies what we all know – that the terrorist’s training most likely occurred in southern Turkey bases by a host of NATO special forces. Glad to help.

SAA should deploy whole groups of the sniper out HTS quads make them pay through attrition. The SAA could slay 20 a day.

I mean eventually HTS will either try attack the SAA positions or retreat.
bring up replacements just feeds more men into the grinder

Alberto Bohon

HTS is Al Qaeda of Syria.

“Enemy At The Gates” is bad fiction. Even the original book is badly written quasi fiction.

Doesn’t seem “elite” to me, since the SAA kicked his arse to hell.

Condolences to the fallen wahabimossad agent.
May he rest in pieces…

Can’t see clearly from the photo but that definitely isn’t a Russian SVD “sniper” rifle he’s carrying. It looks like a Western made genuine sniper rifle. So who’s been giving them these weapons?

Look for a 104 acre embassy in Iraq and you’ll find your answer. You’ll also find the outlet for Afghan heroin and the finance dept; for ISIS, a multifunctional and extremely busy “embassy”.

Russia’s recent and intensified tactical training of SAA units showing results?!
