(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Senior commander of Jabhet Fateh al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) was killed by a missile fired from a drone –believed to be affiliated with the US-led coalition– in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib.
Ahmad Salamah Mabrouk, aka Abu al-Faraj al-Massri, was killed along with two of his companions when a missile hit their car in a village near Jisr al-Shogour.
Al-Marsi appeared in a video recording next to al-Nusra chief in Syria, Abu Mohammed al-Jolani, when the group changed its name to Jabhet Fateh al-Sham last August.
Al-Nusra-led Jaish al-Fateh has taken over Idlib in major offensive last year.
