Top Islamist commander torn apart by gunfire as unknown assassins conduct another hit in Idlib
[ALMASDARNEWS] In an event not at all uncommon in rebel-held northwest Syria, another top Islamist commander as been killed by mysterious assassins who will most likely never be identified.

On Saturday, Abu Muawiyah al-Hamwi (seen above), a battlefield leader for the Ahrar al-Sham
...a Syria jihadi group made up of Islamists and salafists, not that there's that much difference, formed into a brigade. They make up the main element of the Islamic Front but they don't profess adoration of al-Qaeda and they've been fighting (mainly for survival) against the Islamic State. Their leadership was wiped out at a single blow by a suicide kaboom at a crowded basement meeting in September, 2014...
Islamist group was ambushed whilst driving along the Marat al-Numa’an highway in southern Idlib province.

Unknown button men jumped his car whilst it was in motion, unleashing a hail of bullets onto it.

During the attack, Abu Muawiyah al-Hamwi was struck multiple times. Not being killed on the spot, he was rushed to a nearby field hospital where he nonetheless died on Sunday due to his injuries.

Rebels are officially blaming pro-government spies for Abu Muawiyah al-Hamwi’s liquidation and given the recent release of self-admitting evidences by Syrian intelligence of its penetration into myrmidon-held northwest Syria (as well as myrmidon ranks), this may very well be the case.
