BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 A.M.) – Another high ranking commander from the jihadist rebel faction Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham has been assassinated in northern Syria this month, the group’s official media wing reported on Monday.
Abu Hamam Al-Turkmani of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham was assassinated on Monday night when his vehicle was ambushed by unknown assailants in southern Idlib.
According to the official media wing of HTS, Abu Hamam Al-Turkman was assassinated when unknown assailants opened fire on his vehicle in the town of Balyoun.
The jihadist commander was reportedly found dead shortly after his vehicle was targeted by these unknown assailants in rural Idlib.
No group has claimed responsibility for this attack; however, opposition activists have blamed Syrian Arab Army (SAA) spies in the area.
Recently, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces have posted photos from this area, showing that their spies are currently active behind enemy lines.
