BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – A Syrian military commander that deployed to Libya to assist the Turkish-backed Government of National Accord forces has been assassinated, a new report has revealed.

According to investigative journalist Lindsey Snell, the Hamza Division commander Abu Hussein Al-Hindawi was assassinated with five other members of the militant group in Libya a few days ago.

As pointed out in the tweet above, the assassination was believed to have been carried out by a rival Turkish-backed militant group.

It appears that the militant infighting is not exclusive to Syria, as these latest reports suggest that the rebel forces have engaged in clashes with one another in Libya as well.

In December, a Bloomberg News report revealed that Turkey was deploying Syrian militants to Libya to help the struggling GNA forces in the northern part of the country.

Since their deployment, however, the Syrian militants have done little to turn the tide of the battle in northern Libya, as the Libyan National Army (LNA) has managed to capture several areas, including the port-city of Sirte.
