Army units killed a key Chechen rebel commander in the Northern parts of Syria, while their comrades killed several al-Nusra Front commanders in the Eastern parts of the country, informed sources announced on Saturday.
Abu Mohanad Checheni, commander of Mohajerin and Ansar Army which mostly consists of Chechen militants was killed two days ago in fierce clashes with the army in Aleppo in Northern Syria, rebel sources said.

Meantime, government sources said the army troops have killed several Al-Nusra commanders, including commander of Jafar Al-Tayar and Katibeh Shahid Abu Dajaneh and Katibeh Abideh Ibn Al-Jarrah in Kabajeb town in Deir Ezzur in Eastern Syria during the last 24 hours.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
According to reports, the western powers and their regional allies, specially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
