An Uyghur jihadist commander was recently gunned down in front of his home in Northeastern Lattakia, opposition activists reported via social media.

 

According to the reports, the Uyghur commander of the Turkey-backed National Liberation Front was leaving his home in Northeastern Lattakia, when unknown assailants opened fire and killed him on Monday, massdar news reported.

 

The jihadist commander was identified as Abu ‘Abdel-Qader Uyghori; he had previously served on several fronts in Northwestern Syria prior to his death.

 

No group has claimed responsibility for his assassination.

 

Some opposition activists have accused Tahrir Al-Sham Hay’at of killing the commander.

Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) continued storming Ahrar al-Sham positions on Tuesday and pushed them back from more regions in Northeastern Hama and Southwestern Idlib.

 

Tahrir al-Sham engaged in fierce clashes with rival terrorists of Ahrar al-Sham in al-Ghaab Plain in Northwestern Hama and al-Roj Plain in Southwestern Idlib, seizing control over the small towns of Zizoun, al-Sahan, al-Laj and most of regions in al-Roj Plain.

 

A tough battle is still underway between the rival groups in the village of Qastoun in Northwestern Hama.

 

The infighting has inflicted major casualties on both warring sides and also on civilians.

A notorious field commander of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) was gunned down by unknown raiders and another one was killed in a bomb blast in Hasaka province, local sources reported on Tuesday.

 

The sources said that Forat Hasaka, a senior SDF commander, was killed after unidentified raiders opened fire at his vehicle along a road between Hasaka and Tal Barak on Monday.

 

They further said that a bomb-laden vehicle went off in al-Masaref district in the border town of Qaishli in Northeastern Hasaka on Monday, killing a number of the SDF gunmen, including their Commander Houzan Abu Akeed.

 

The sources went on to say that a number of SDF gunmen were also killed in another blast near Bolqar camp East of the town of al-Shadadi in Southern Hasaka. 

 

Aleppo

 

A number of Turkish troops and Ankara-backed militants were killed after the Kurdish militia targeted them in occupied Afrin in Northwestern Aleppo, field sources reported on Tuesday.

 

According to Fars News Agency, the sources said that the Kurdish units fired a thermal missile on a group of Turkish soldiers and their allied militants in the village of Deir Mashmash in Afrin, killing over 10 of them and injuring several more.

 

A military vehicle of the Ankara forces was destroyed in the attack too.

 

In the meantime, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that a commander of Ankara-backed militants was killed and two of his forces were injured in the Kurdish missile attack in Basalhaya region in Afrin.

 

It further said that the Kurdish forces' attack on a base of Ankara-backed Firqa al-Hamza in al-Mahmoudiyah district in the town of Afrin sparked fierce clashes between the two sides.
