On Friday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalion), and several Iraqi paramilitaries – imposed full control over the imperative village of Kafr Haddad after a series of intense firefights with the Islamist rebels from Harakat Ahrar al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham.

With the capture of Kafr Haddad, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance are within 25km of the imperative rebel stronghold of Saraqib in the Idlib Governorate and 30km east of the predominately Shi’i towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya.

Following the successful capture of Kafr Haddad by the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance, the news of Jabhal Al-Nusra’s lead field commander “Abu ‘Ameer” death was revealed by the aforementioned Islamist group, marking the conclusion of a disastrous day.

According to social media activists from Jabhat Al-Nusra, Abu ‘Ameer’s real name is Faysal Shareef; however, they did not reveal anymore information regarding his identity, only sorrowful messages honoring this Al-Qaeda affiliated  leader.

Field reports from the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside revealed that many more Islamist rebels from Jabhat Al-Nusra, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham were killed during Friday’s firefights, including several foreign fighters from both sides.
