URGENT: Al-Nusra Top Regional Commander Killed in East of Syria’s Dara’a
Abu Jalibib al-Ordoni, one of the senior commanders of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front, was killed in a bomb explosion on Seida-Kahil road in the Eastern countryside of Dara’a, battlefield sources said.
Another senior commander of al-Nusra Front was killed in clashes with rivals from the ISIL terrorist group near Zabadani city in Damascus province just last Monday. Ismail Mouzafar, was killed in clashes with ISIL in Serghaya near Zabadani city.
The Al-Nusra Front, which is the branch of Al-Qaeda in Syria, has lost tens of ranking and top regional commanders in the war with Damascus troops and their allies in the last two months.
In November, fierce clashes also took pace between rival terrorist groups in the province of Dara’a, leaving scores of militants dead and injured as rifts widened between the terrorists after the Syrian army continued advance in more militant-held territories.
Clashes erupted between terrorists of al-Nusra Front and the so-called “Liwa Shuhadaa al-Yarmouk” terrorist group in al-Allan area in the Western countryside of Dara’a after al-Nusra announced on its Twitter account that it had killed the chief of Liwa Shuhadaa al-Yarmouk.
Dozens of terrorists from both sides were killed or injured in the clashes.
Abu Ali al-Breidi, the leader of Liwa Shuhadaa al-Yarmouk, was reportedly killed in a suicide attack by al-Nusra Front that targeted one of the terrorist group’s positions.
Terrorist groups’ confirmed infighting between the Takfiri terrorist groups on their social media pages, and said that members of Liwa Shuhadaa al-Yarmouk killed around 50 al-Nusra Front leaders in less than one month, and killed and abducted 300 other al-Nusra Front members.
