BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – The rebel forces in southeast Idlib suffered another big loss this week after a military commander of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham was killed by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the Hama axis.

According to military report from the Syrian Army, the elite Tiger Forces killed the Ahrar Al-Sham commander, Yousef Khaled Al-Yousef, during clashes on Wednesday.

Yousef was one of the commanders of the jihadist forces that captured the provincial capital of the Idlib Governorate in 2015; he was considered a seasoned leader and important part of Ahrar Al-Sham.

With Yousef killed, Ahrar Al-Sham will have to find another competent commander to lead their forces in the southeastern countryside of Idlib.
