The US-led coalition’s unmanned drones killed today a new senior commander in Fatth al-Sham after targeting his car in Idlib countryside, Orient News correspondent said.   

The Pentagon said that a senior Jabhat Fatth al-sham commander was killed by the coalition, and the operation’s results were being assessed, Aljazeera TV reported.

The US-led coalition targeted the car of Abo al-Farej al-Masri, the senior Sharia judge in Fatth al-Sham. He immediately lost his life. The assassination took place at al-Daya crossroad in Idlib northern countryside’s Jisr al-Sheghoor, Orient Net learnt from special sources.    

Ahmad Salama Mabrook, nicknamed “Abo al-Faraj,” appeared in the video when Abo Mohammad al-Julani announced al-Nusra Front’s split from al-Qaeda.


Abo Omar Saraqeb, a senior military commander and founding member of the same group, was also killed in a US-led coalition raid on a rural part of Aleppo on Sep. 9.  

The Nusra Front announced in July that it was ending a relationship with al-Qaeda and changing its name to Jabhat Fatah al-Sham in an attempt to appeal to those Syrians who had misgivings about its links with al-Qaeda.
