Syrian Nusra Front’s Abu Firas, foreign jihadists killed in Idlib air strike

A prominent leader in Syrian Al Qaeda offshoot the Nusra Front was killed on Sunday in an air raid in the rebel held north western province of Idlib alongside at least 20 other militants including foreign jihadists, rebels and a monitoring group said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks violence in the country, confirmed reports on websites by militant sympathizers that Abu Firas, “the Syrian”, was killed in a suspected Syrian or Russian air raid on a village northwest of the city of Idlib in northwestern Syria.
