A powerful blast was reported from the Idlib Governorate tonight after a car bomb was detonated near Jabhat Al-Nusra’s (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) headquarters in the provincial capital.
The car bombing at their headquarters resulted in the death of Jabhat Al-Nusra’s top Uzbek field commander in the Idlib Governorate. This Uzbek commander was identified as “Abu Bakr Al-Uzbeki” – a veteran jihadist that has fought alongside the Syrian opposition since Jaysh Al-Fateh’s (Army of Conquest) massive Idlib operation in April 2015.
Abu Bakr Al-Uzbeki is now the sixth jihadist commander to be killed inside the Idlib Governorate in the last four days.
