Three rebel commanders were killed, scores others injured as a Russian fighter jet pummeled their headquarter in the town of Taftanaz, located 17 km to the northeast of the provincial capital of Idlib province.

The slain commanders, fighting under Al-Haq Brigade (part of the Nusra-led Jaysh al-Fateh), were at a meeting when the airstrike took place.

A nationwide ceasefire brokered by Russia, Iran and Turkey was put in place on December 30th, but excluding ISIS, Jabhet al-Nusra and affiliated groups.

Last Friday, a senior commander from Al-Haq Brigade and his son were killed in a drone strike conducted by the US-led coalition.
