According to the sources, the military commander of the Nouralddeen al-Zinki Movement, known as Omar Salkhu, was traced and shot dead just five days after another terrorist who had decapitated the Palestinian kid was hunted down in a similar mission by the army.
The Syrian Army troops, tipped off by intelligence agents, had found out the hideout of a group of Nouralddeen al-Zinki movement in al-Malaah region on Saturday, storming their position and killing several terrorists, including the man who decapitated the Palestinian boy.
A video released last week showing that Nouralddeen al-Zinki Movement, named by the US as a moderate group, arrested, tortured and severely executed a very young boy on charges of cooperating with the Syrian government forces.
Several Nouralddeen al-Zinki terrorists have been complicit in the crime, but Salkhu was reportedly the commander who had issued the order for the crime.
Nouralddeen al-Zinki is affiliated to the Free Syrian Army which receives US financial supports as a moderate group. They have also been using US-made TOW anti-tank missiles in Aleppo battlefields.
