BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – Four jihadist rebels were gunned down mysteriously on Sunday after a group of unknown assailants opened fire on them in the southern countryside of the Idlib governorate.
According to pro-militant media, four memebrs of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham were killed while they were traveling near the town of Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idlib.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
In the past, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) sleeper cells have carried out similar attacks like this, prompting Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham to launch a security operation to crack down on these strikes.
Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham is currently the most powerful rebel group in northwestern Syria; they control most of the Idlib Governorate and much of western Aleppo.
