Another senior officer from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” has been killed this week by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA); however, this time, a Nusra leader was killed in southern Syria, rather than the volatile northern front where most of the jihadist groups dwell.

According to a military report from the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division Headquarters in Izra’a, the Nusra leader was identified as “Abu Mohammad Al-Hafizh” – he was believed to be a Syrian national from Dara’a before he was killed during the battle for Sheikh Miskeen on Tuesday.

Abu Mohammad Al-Hafizh was considered to be one of the top officials/spokesman for Jabhat Al-Nusra in southern Syria before he was reportedly killed by the Syrian Armed Forces.

The Al-Qaeda affiliated leader was among the Islamist rebels that captured the city of Sheikh Miskeen from the Syrian Armed Forces last December; since the time of his death, he continued to lead his contingent in battle.

In the last 48 hours, 2 high ranking commanders from Jabhat Al-Nusra have been killed by the Syrian Arab Army inside of Syria.
