Mohammad Soleiman, the senior commander of Syria’s Liberation Front, was assassinated by unidentified raiders near the village of Sheikh Ali, the sources in Western Aleppo said.
They went on to say that a fresh wave of tensions has covered terrorist-held regions in Aleppo and Idlib, adding that the terrorist groups’ commanders have kept fighters on alert in the Northern provinces.
They further said that Faylaq al-Rahman and Jeish al-Ahrar have embarked on arresting people after assassination of Khalil Ismayeel Arsan, the deputy commander of Jeish al-Ahrar in Jobas in Eastern Idlib.
The sources said that Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) has put its militants on alert and set up more checkpoints after assassination of tens of its members and commanders in Idlib.
Assassination operations against terrorists have intensified in Northern and Northwestern Syria in recent months.
In a similar development on Monday, unknown assailants opened fire at Abu Ismayeel, the deputy commander of Jeish al-Ahrar, killing him in the village of Jobas Southwest of the town of Saraqib.
In the meantime, three terrorists were killed and six more were wounded after a bomb, planted by unknown parties in a vehicle of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at militants, went off in the small town of Darkoush in Northern Idlib.
Local sources, meantime, reported that unknown armed men stormed al-Dana hospital in the town of al-Dana in Northern Idlib and kidnapped several media staff.
