BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – Over the past four days, several jihadist commanders have been assassinated in the Syrian province of Idlib, prompting many rebel factions to tighten security in the region.

According to the pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), at least 29 people have been killed as a result of these mysterious assassinations, including five civilians.

The pro-opposition monitor also added that another 40 more people were wounded by IEDs and gunfire from sporadic attacks from unknown assailants in the Idlib Governorate.

Opposition activists have blamed both the Islamic State (ISIS) and Syrian Army for the assassinations; however, no group has claimed responsibility for any of the attacks in this province.

These assassinations of high ranking jihadist commanders commenced late last year, when several leaders of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham were reportedly killed by IEDs in Idlib.
