The leader of Shura Council in al-Nusra Front terrorist group – al-Qaeda branch in Syria – Abu Hamza al-Zoubi, was killed in a suicide attack he carried out in Sahl al-Ghab (valley of the forest) region in Syria, sources in the Lebanese northern region in Tripoli city announced Tuesday.

“Now, I will take a rest from the group’s problems and internal splits, and will determine my destiny myself,” Zoubi said in his latest post on online social accounts.

Moreover, sources revealed that more than 16 Lebanese were killed in regional fighting during the last 24 hours. No more details were elaborated fearing of possible reactions of their parents.

Less than 5 hours after Zoubi’s attack, Abu Omar Al-Lubnani (the Lebanese) – another operative within al-Nusra ranks — was announced killed in a suicide attack in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk.

Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the western media reports accuse countries, mainly the USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of orchestrating the civil conflict in the country and providing terrorist groups with money, weapons and trained mercenaries.

In May 2013, Syrian army launched a wide-scale operation against armed groups and gunmen operating in the country who started to escape the army blows and infiltrate illegally to Lebanon.

Terrorist groups – particularly the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) and Al-Nusra Front – and their affiliates intensified their attacks in Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Tunisia, etc.  following the self- declared ‘caliphate” in northern region of Iraq, in a bid to spread panic among the people.
