A notorious Saudi ringleader of Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group, was killed in Idlib province, Northwestern Syria on Monday.
Abdulrahman al-Khazir, a high-profile senior commander of the Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group, was killed in fierce clashes with the volunteer forces in the al-Sawaqiye region near the al-Fooheh town in North of Idlib city.
FNA dispatches from the region said bloody clashes are underway between the foreign-backed Takfiri terrorist group and the popular forces as the joint troops of Ahrar al-Sham and Al-Nusra Front have kept the siege of Al-Fooheh and Kafria towns.
The reports also said that the volunteer forces destroyed a militants’ tank and its crew.
Idlib has been under the Takfiri terrorists’ heavy missile and mortar attacks in recent months.
Syria has been battling foreign-sponsored militants since March 2011. The violence fueled by Takfiri terrorist groups, including al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham, has so far left over 3,000 people of al-Fooheh and Kafria dead.
