A rebel commander was killed when a suicide bomber driving a booby-trapped tanker blew up his vehicle near a security center for the US-backed Ahrah al_Sham Movement in Maarrat al-Numan (located nearly 33 km to the south of Idlib).

No one has so far claimed responsibility for the attack which also wounded scores of Ahrar al-Sham fighters.

“We know who sent this VBIED, and we will respond to them very quickly”, a spokesman for the Islamist groups said in video that shows the aftermath of the attack.

Ahrar al-Sham has been engaged in heavy fighting with Jund al-Aqsa, a rival ISIS-affiliated jihadi group which later pledged allegiance to Jabhet Fateh al-Sham (formerly Jabhet al-Nusa).
