The leader of the Faylaq Al-Sham militant faction in the north Aleppo front Mohammad Bakkar, known as Abu Mahmoud by his peers, was killed in the last rebel attack on Mallah.

Bakkar was born in the town of Buweida in Homs’s countryside. A former Syrian Army soldier, he rose to the rank of Colonel in the Islamist faction Faylaq Al-Sham and oversaw many important jihadist offensives.

Battles become bloodier in north Aleppo as militant groups become more and more desperate attempting to lift the siege off their entrenched comrades in eastern Aleppo neighborhoods.

Former colonel of SAA = serious strategy asset.
And for SAA : simply a traitor to SAA and Syria that’d had been hanged by syrian justice and, as a mudjahid, simply a traitor to God : as Allah is supposed to be the God of Abraham, Moses and Jesus (so the God of the Jews and Christians), his 6th command being “thou shall not kill” so all moudjahideens are apostates and much worst, “shirk”…
