Abu Omar, a notorious commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front), was assassinated by the gun fire of unidentified assailants along a road to the village of Sheih Ali in Western Aleppo.
Abu Omar was the first aide of Commander of Tahrir al-Sham in bombing and explosion operations Abu Ahmad Sharoukh that was assassinated by unknown gunmen last week.
On the opposite side, senior commander of Turkey-backed Ahrar al-Sham Abu Ali al-Babi was also gunned down by unknown raiders in al-Qout settlement in al-Bab region on Friday.
Abu Ali was in charge of supplying arms and ammunition to Ahrar al-Sham.
Local sources further said that intensified assassination of militant commanders by unknown raiders and looting of peoples’ assets by Ankara forces have caused people in the region to call for expulsion of militants from Aleppo province in several demonstrations.
The sources went on to say that other regions in Northern Syria that are under the control of the Turkish troops or their allied militants have been wrapped in increasing insecurity.
