Syrian security sources disclosed that a senior Ahrar al-Sham commander has been killed in a bomb explosion in Southern Idlib.


Abu Oday Ahrar was killed in the blast of an improvised explosive device (IED) planted by unknown assailants in Tal Manes region in Southern Idlib, the Arabic-language Rasad News reported.

In a relevant development in early October, one of the notorious commanders of Ahrar al-Sham was killed in heavy fighting with Jund al-Aqsa terrorist group in Southern Idlib.

Jom'ah Hawash nom de guerre Abu Talib was killed in clashes with Jund al-Aqsa fighters in Khan Sheikhoun.

Media sources in Idlib in September disclosed intense infighting among two terrorist groups stationed in the province's Ariha region.

"The differences have increased among the Jund al-Aqsa and Ahrar al-Sham terrorist groups in Ariha region in Idlib province in the Northwestern part of Syria," the Arabic-language media quoted an informed source as saying.

"The differences intensified between the two terrorist groups after a Jund al-Aqsa terrorist attacked the brother of the commander of Ahrar al-Sham's Ariha Battalion," the sources said.

Infighting has increased among rival terrorist groups in Idlib province after they have come under the Syrian army siege and lost vast parts of lands across Syria, specially in neighboring Aleppo, to the government forces, FNA reported.
