Naimi was accompanied by his wife when their car exploded as the IED blast went off.

Tensions are tensed in the south regions of Syria between Al-Qaeda- affiliated Al Nusra terrorist group and other armed groups, in the wake of arrest of ” military council chief in Daraa province, Colonel Ahmed Neameh” by Al-Nusra Front, in spite of the pilot accompanying him, Acer Alkhtaba, was released.

Meanwhile, 52 armed groups in Daraa gave the Front two days to uncover the fate of Neameh and his comrades as they set up check points in their deployment areas.

Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the Syrian government accuses foreign actors, mainly the Saudi Arabia and Turkey, of orchestrating the conflict by supporting the militant opposition groups with arms and money.

Today hundreds of armed groups, including terrorist takfiri brigades affiliated with Al-Qaeda, are battling both the national army and each other, complicating any efforts to reach a political settlement.
