Al-Qaeda’s so-called top emir gunned down in Idlib
A top leader (emir) of the Al-Qaeda-linked Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorist group has been assassinated in northern Idlib near the border with Turkey.
Hours ago, unknown assailants gunned down HTS emir Abu Nasibah al-Tunisi, a Tunisian national, whilst he was traveling along Harem-Salqin road.
The assassins targeted Abu Nasibah al-Tunisi’s car with automatic fire, killing him instantly as well as another fighter that was present in the vehicle.
There are suspicions that the assassins belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Ahrar al-Sham militant group which is currently locked in an ongoing power struggle with HTS for control of the Idlib region.
