Several leaders of militant groups were killed by a group of unidentified armed men in Idlib and Dara’a provinces.
A wave of attacks on field commanders of various armed groups and their bases has been once again spotted on militant-held territories in the northern parts of Syria, where several areas of Idlib province were struck, as well as in the south of the country, where terrorist leaders were attacked in the western areas of Dara’a province.
According to the Step News news agency, today, a group of unidentified armed men attacked one of the bases of the Free Idlib Army, which belonged to the Al-Furqan detachment and was located in the area of Maarrat al-Nu’man city in the south of Idlib. As a result of the attack, commander of the detachment Ahmad Ali al-Hattyb and commander of jihadists, who operate in the north of Hama, were killed.
As it was reported, the attackers arrived by four vehicles. They launched their offensive early in the morning, when almost no one was on the base, as all fighters of the Al-Furqan detachment were on positions in Hama at that moment. Before leaving, the attackers looted the base of militants.
In addition, unknown armed men also attacked a checkpoint of the Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group, located near the administrative border between the provinces of Hama and Idlib. As a result of the attack, one terrorist, Mustafa al-Djidan, was killed. The unidentified group also blew up an explosive device in the town of Binnish, located near the besieged towns of Al Fu’ah and Kafarya, wounding several people.
Moreover, last night, an unsuccessful attempted assassination of a commander of Islamists took place in the city of Nawa in the west of the southern province of Dara’a.
It is still unknown, who is behind these attacks. Some opposition activists accuse agents of the Syrian government, while others blame on the foreign Special Forces.
