During clashes in the northern countryside of Hama yesterday which saw Islamist rebels capture several villages from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the latter did manage to inflict heavy casualties upon Jaish al-Fateh factions which have largely abandoned the western Aleppo frontline in favor of Hama province in central Syria.

Ajnad al-Sham’s social media department said their commander, Basel Marwan Al-Bakri (nicknamed Abu Marwan), was killed by the SAA during yesterday’s advance. The Islamist commander participated in several recent battles in Hama, leading Ajnad al-Sham’s storming forces alongside Jund al-Aqsa (Syrian al-Qaeda group).

Islamist commander

Basel Marwan Al-bakri was known as a battle hardened leader who had trained hundreds of Islamist recruits at Ajnad al-Sham training camps. He was also namesake and son of Marwan al-Bakri, equally Ajnad al-Sham commander, who was killed by the SAA in the Syrian capital of Damascus earlier this year.

Despite the death of Basel Marwan Al-bakri, Islamist rebels still have the upper hand in Hama as their forces are slowly advance towards the provincial capital. Nevertheless, just hours ago, the SAA announced a major government counter-offensive was set to begin with none other than Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan inspecting the frontlines in the area.
