This evening, the top jihadist commander and Idlib emir of Jabhat al-Nusra (Syrian al-Qaeda group), Abo Abd Allah Jabal, was killed by a Russian airstrike in northwestern Aleppo; other reports claim his cause of death to be from an IED (roadside bomb) by unknown assailants during a meeting in the area.

Abo Abd Allah Jabal spearheaded the al-Nusra Front during recent successful battles at Al-Eis and Khan Touman; he was said to be leader of the jihadist group’s assault troops and highly feared elite suicide squad.

The death of Abo Abd Allah Jabal represents a devastating blow to the moral of Islamist rebels in northwestern Aleppo – this area is important as just a few rebel-held kilometers keep the SAA from severing the last insurgent supply line to Aleppo city.

If the supply line at the Castello road is cut off, insurgents inside Aleppo city will be isolated from the rebel mainland, similar to current scenario in Damascus.
