The past 24 hours have brought Idlib’s ongoing infighting to new deadly heights as at least 50 Islamists have been killed and over 100 injured in the heartland of Jaish al-Fateh.

Most skirmishes occurred south of Idlib on the vicinity of Khan Touman and its nearby villages while the clashes are exclusively between Tahrir al-Sham and Jund al-Aqsa.

On Monday afternoon, Jund al-Aqsa fighters stormed a sharia court around two kilometers south of Khan Touman and executed 24 members of Tahrir al-Sham at point-blank range.

Several prominent Islamist names were among the deceased, including Abou Bakr Tamana, Abou Hussien al-Harmosh, Abou Riyhana, and Muhammad Al-Dashash.

The latter personality was featured in several Jabhat al-Nusra propaganda videos and remained a field commander up until his death. His pictures can be seen below:

In a separate instance, two Islamist fighters were killed as a van accidentally blew up elsewhere in the Idlib countryside after storing ammunition improperly.

Furthermore, pro-government spies appear to be lurking in the shadows as the Russian Airforce is relying increasingly on local informants to direct airstrikes in Idlib province.

If they could continue in this way, that will be nice. It is so sympathetic to see these guys disappearing of the world 🙂

When you know that Salafist apologetics deny Darwin’s theories while since the beginning, before even Darwin theorised all this, jihadists already proved it to be true… Well, in some way, the way people are brainwashed into jihad is very practical : it simply leads to their self destruction…
