Hossein Ali al-Chawish, Mufti of Horas al-Deen terrorist group, was killed by unknown gunmen near the village of Um Atabah in Southwestern Aleppo.
Local sources said that al-Chawish was assassinated by Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) at Abu Atabah checkpoint.
Assassination of terrorist groups’ members and commanders has recently increased in spite of declaring ceasefire among rival militant groups in Northern Syria.
Sources affiliated to the terrorists in Afrin reported on Thursday that a commander of Faylaq al-Rahman ‘Free Police’ in Eastern Ghouta named Abu Khalid al-Zaqloul was killed in a bomb explosion in al-Basouteh region of the town of Afrin.
They referred to the recent talks between Faylaq al-Rahman and the Turkish army to deliver security control of Afrin to the terrorist group, saying that al-Zaqloul was one of the participants in the negotiations.
Meantime, local sources reported that members of Sultan Mohammad al-Fatah and al-Montasar Bellah terrorist groups affiliated to the Turkish army engaged in heavy clashes in Afrin after disputes over how to distribute the properties looted from people in the region, adding that a number of both sides’ militants were killed and wounded in the clashes.
