German leader of the outlawed foreign-backed militants has been killed in the western port city of Latakia in Syria.

German national Abu Zaid al-Almani, who was a leader of Syrian foreign backed terrorists, was killed during clashes in the village of Dourin in the suburbs of Latakia.

Earlier on Sunday, Syrian Army troops killed another commander of a foreign-sponsored militant group affiliated with the al-Qaeda, Abu Malik al-Shahri, during a mop-up operation in Latakia.

Shahri, generally known as the Bin Laden of Syria, was a comrade of the slain founder of the al-Qaeda, Osama Bin Ladan. He was reportedly involved in the massacre of many civilians and government soldiers across Syria.

Over the past few days, Syrian forces have killed scores of Takfiri militants - mostly foreign mercenaries - in Latakia.

Syria has been gripped by deadly turmoil since 2011.

According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and millions of others displaced in the violence.

Reports indicate that Western powers and their regional allies - especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey - are supporting the militants operating inside the country.
