Key foreign jihadist commander assassinated in Idlib
[ALMASDARNEWS] An important commander in the Hurras al-Deen group was recently assassinated at the town of Taftanaz in the Idlib countryside.

According to reports from opposition activists, the Hurras al-Deen official in the Hurras al-Deen group was assassinated on Sunday when his vehicle was targeted by an improvised bomb in Taftanaz.

The terrorist official was identified as Abu al-Walid al-Tunisi, a Tunisian national that has held several roles during the Syrian conflict.

No group has grabbed credit for the attack; however, opposition activists have accused the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS/ISIS/IS/ISIS) sleeper cells in Idlib for the liquidation.

ISIS sleeper cells have often carried out similar attacks in Idlib, which is why groups like Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
and the Free Syrian Army
... the more palatable version of the Syrian insurgency, heavily influenced by the Moslem Brüderbund...
(FSA) have conducted several raids of their suspected hideouts.
