“Unidentified people that had planted a large volume of explosive materials in one of the vehicles of Fatah al-Sham detonated it in the town of Khan al-Sabal in Southeastern Idlib, killing Abu Amyar al-Khorsani, a commander of Fatah al-Sham, and his assistant,” the sources said.
They added that a bomb-laden vehicle of Ahrar al-Sham was also detonated in the town of al-Tah in Idlib countryside, injuring a group member.
The sources went on to say that Faylaq al-Sham’s bases in the town of Kaftin in Idlib countryside were also raided by masked assailants who stole weapons and took the guards into captivity.
“Panic has spread among Fatah al-Sham members after the recent incidents. They are accusing each other of treason and mounting spying devices in their commanders’ vehicles,” the sources pointed out.
Reports said earlier today that two notorious commanders of Fatah al-Sham Front were killed in an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attack on their vehicle on Sarmada-Batbu road in Northern Idlib.
Abu Omar al-Turkistani, one of the most important commanders and a main nominee for presiding the Militants’ Council, was killed in a drone attack.
In the meantime, Khatab al-Qahtani, one of the most notorious commanders of Fatah al-Sham and al-Qaeda that accompanied Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan’s war, was also in the vehicle and was killed right on the spot.
It is not yet clear who operated the drone and launched the attack.
