The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” took another hit on Friday morning, when an IED (improvised explosive device) was detonated at this terrorist group’s meeting in the northern Syrian province of Idlib, reportedly killing three warlords in the process.
According to social media activists from Jabhat Al-Nusra, three warlords from the aforementioned terrorist group were killed in a well-planned assassination that targeted their leaders in Idlib.
The Jabhat Al-Nusra social media activists identified the warlords as “Abu Zubayr Al-Sham”, “Abu Dujana Al-Ansari”, and “Abu Al-Nasir Al-Jazrawi” – the latter is a Saudi national and the highest ranking commander in this group of dead Al-Qaeda emirs.
Currently, no one has claimed responsibility for these assassinations; however, Jabhat Al-Nusra and their affiliate faction “Jund Al-Aqsa” have recently been the target of criticism from their allies in “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) due to their unwillingness to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).
It has not been a good week for Jabhat Al-Nusra, as one of their top commanders from an affiliate group in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside was reportedly killed by shrapnel during the battle for Kafr Abid on Friday.
The Jihadist commander was identified as “Abu Uwais Al-Daghestani” – he was well-known among his comrades and considered a veteran of war.
