BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – A Turkish jihadist commander was the latest victim of a targeted assassination in the Idlib Governorate, opposition activists reported via social media on Wednesday evening.
According to these activists, an unnamed Turkish commander of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham was assassinated when a sticky bomb exploded on his 4×4 vehicle in the northwestern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.
The activists reported that the assassination was carried out near the Bsania town bakery on Wednesday.
The sticky bomb that was reportedly used during the assassination was a modern manufactured bomb and not DIY one, which indicates that some country intelligent spies are behind the assassination and not the Islamic State (ISIS), opposition activists added.
As of now, no group has claimed responsibility for this assassination.
