Ahmad al-Saoud, a military leader of the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) 13th Division, was assasinated by members of another ‘moderate opposition gorup’ Hayat Tahrir al-Sham in the Syrian province of Idlib, according to the Saudi-owned television news channel ‘Al Arabia’.

Lt. Col. Ahmad al-Saoud defected from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and participated in the creation of the FSA’s 13th Division during the early stage of the Syrian war.
The 13th Division is one of the groups widely supported by the so-called Friends of Syria and has received a high number of US-made TOW missiles.
Ahmad al-Saoud was killed by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. The mainstream media has repeatedly called it ‘moderate opposition group’, especially during the recent clashes in northern Hama. Indeed, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham is just another name for Jabhat al-Nusra, formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda.
