BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 P.M.) – Two commanders from the Hurras Al-Deen group were killed on Sunday, when a drone struck their positions in the Idlib Governorate.

According to the preliminary reports, the two leaders, Bilal Al-Sanani (Yemeni national) and Qassam Al-Urdoni (Jordanian national), were killed by a U.S. Coalition drone in the Idlib city.

The drone strike targeted the vehicle carrying both men and their associate, Mohammad Al-Ahmad, who was seriously wounded as a result of the U.S. Coalition attack.

The attack appears to have been carried out by a U.S. ninja drone, as the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was reportedly spotted over the Idlib Governorate before attacking the car with the jihadists inside.

The Hurras Al-Deen group, which is linked to Al-Qaeda, has long operated in northwestern Syria, as they maintain control over some parts of the Idlib, Hama, and Latakia governorates.

Most recently, they carried out a powerful attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops at the Tanjara axis in the Al-Ghaab Plain region of Hama.

Sunday’s attack by the U.S. Coalition marks the first time since October 2019, when the U.S. killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, that they have carried out a drone strike in Idlib.
