Syrian Army troops killed a top commander of al-Nusra Front Takfiri terrorist group Egypt-born Abu Sulaiman Masri in clashes with in Aleppo, a report says.

 

Egypt-born Abu Sulaiman Masri, has been fatally shot in the head during a clash with the Syrian government forces in the Tal-al-Karsani village in the outskirt of the northern city of Aleppo, Russia's Sputnik news agency reported Saturday, citing unnamed sources.

The al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front is considered the second largest terror group operating in the war-torn Syria after Daesh thus Masri’s death could be considered as a hard blow to its operations in the Middle Eastern country.

Al-Nusra Front has reportedly confirmed its leader’s death and posted photos of his lifeless body online.

Aleppo is Syria’s second largest city and used to serve as the country’s major trade hub before the crisis started in March 2011. Control over the major city has been divided between militants and government forces although fresh gains by the Syrian armed forces are reportedly changing the situation in favor of the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

The foreign-sponsored conflict in Syria, which was ignited in March 2011, has killed more than 250,000 people and left over one million injured, according to the United Nations.
