Key Hayat Tahrir al-Sham Saudi commander killed by Syrian Helicopters + Video
Hayat Tahrir al-Sham Sharia law Chief and key figure called Al-Mutasim Billah al-Madani was killed on Sunday by Syrian airstrikes in northern Hama countryside.
Al-Mutasim Billah is a Saudi nationality and he was the Sharia Chief of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham alongside the Saudi Abdullah Al-Muhaisni.
The announcement of Al-Mutasim’s death came just one day after Muraselon News reported that Syrian air force has targeted and destroyed a base for Hayat Tahrir al-Sham in al-Arbaeen mountain region where tens of fighters including key commanders were killed in the airstrikes.
Meanwhile, opposition media outlets said that al-Mutasim Billah was killed in clashes against the Syrian Army on Kafr Nabudah fronts which was denied by a field source who told Muraselon that jihadist rebels tend to mourn death of commanders saying they are killed at the front-lines when in facts, many were killed by airstrikes inside their fortified bases far away from the front-lens.
Yesterday, the Syrian army led by Tiger Forces managed in a swift offensive to capture Kafr Nabudah town once again which has been changing hands between the army and militants for couple times in the past weeks.
