Idlib - SMART

On Tuesday, shootings and explosive devices killed a military commander in the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and wounded three civilians north and east of Idlib, Northern Syria.

The HTS is an opposition group previously known as al-Nusra Front, consisting of fighting groups including the Haqq Brigade, Jabhat Ansar al-Deen, and Jaysh al-Sunnah.

Local activists told SMART that unknown gunmen opened fire on the vehicle of a HTS military commander who called himself Abu Bakr al-Masri. The attack occurred on the road between the cities of Idlib and Saraqib, and killed al-Masri immediately.

The activists added that unknown persons planted an explosive device on the road between the city of Ariha and the village of Hattan, north of Idlib. The explosive device exploded in a car carrying civilians, wounding three of them. They were taken to a nearby hospital in the region.

A day ago, a motorcycle bomb exploded near the town of Maarratmisrin (10 kilometers north of Idlib), killing a HTS member.

In recent months, assassinations of leaders and fighters of the Free Syrian Army factions and Islamic battalions by shooting and explosions took place in the governorate of Idlib. In addition, a number of civilians were killed and wounded.
