Non-Syrian Terrorist Commanders Killed by Unknown Raiders in Idlib

Abu Kaziqa Turkistani, a notorious foreign commander of the terrorists, was gunned down by unknown assailants in Southern Idlib amid intensified tensions and infighting among terrorist groups in Northern and Northwestern Syria.

Abu Haziqa Turkistani, a senior commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front), was killed after unidentified attackers opened fire at him near the town of al-Latamina in Southern Idlib.

In the meantime, Abu Zeid Tunisi, a security commander of al-Aqab prison of Tahrir al-Sham, was killed by unidentified gunmen in Jabal al-Zaiwiyah in Southern Idlib.

Meanwhile, over 50 people have been kidnapped in regions controlled by Tahrir al-Sham in Idlib in recent weeks.

Tahrir al-Sham, Ahrar al-Sham and National Liberation Front (NLF) are behind kidnapping each other’s members to force rival groups to pay ransom for the release of their members.

In a relevant development on Saturday, Abdulhamid al-Azo, a field commander of NLF, was killed in a bomb blast along a road connecting Dayer Sharqi to Ein Qari’a in Southern Idlib.

In the meantime, Abu Osama al-Terablosi, a notorious commander of Tahrir al-Sham, was gunned down by unknown raiders near the town of Ma’arat al-Nu’aman in Southern Idlib.

Meanwhile, a number of NLF fighters were killed or injured after a bomb went off near their base in the town of al-Artab in Western Aleppo.

Infighting and assassination operations have increased further in Northern Syria after the endorsement of the Sochi Agreement by Russia and Turkey that ruled for the establishment of a demilitarized zone in Idlib.
