Alalam – Syria
"I can confirm we conducted an strike in that area on Tuesday. We are still assessing the results of the strike," Meyer stated on Wednesday.
Local media reported that a US drone strike near Aqrabat killed Jabhat Fath Al-Sham commander Abu Ibrahim Al-Tunisi. Four other militants of the group also killed in the strike on Idlib governorate, IB Times quoted from local reports said.
Abu Ibrahim al-Tunsi, the Tunisian terrorist, was reportedly a leading member of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly the al-Nusra Front.
Death of Fatah Al Sham Leader’s Possibility Strengthens
"The air raid hit al-Tunsi's convoy in the Aqrabat district in Idlib," an activist told ARA News. However, coalition forces and the militant group are yet to confirm the leader's death.
Jabhat Fatah Al-Sham, formerly known as the Nusra Front, has been fighting in Syria against Syrian government forces since 2011 unrest.
