RNA - "Jeish al-Izza commander Abd al-Baset al-Sarout, nom de guerre 'Custodian of Syria Revolution', who had recently been injured in clashes with the Syrian Army in Northern Hama has succumbed to his injuries," the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper reported.
Meantime, the Syrian army continued its military advances in other parts of Syria over past 24 hours.
Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured during the Syrian army's operations in provinces across Syria.
The terrorists have grown disappointed after the most senior commander of Jeish al-Izza who was very close to Ankara was killed in battle with the Syrian Army in Northern Hama, media reports said.
The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper reported that Jeish al-Izza commander Abd al-Baset al-Sarout, nom de guerre 'Custodian of Syria Revolution', who had recently been injured in clashes with the Syrian Army in Northern Hama has succumbed to his injuries.
The al-Watan noted that Sarout was one of the main role players in orchestrating attacks on the Syrian Army's military positions in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib as well as attacks on safe and deescalation zones, and said that a wave of disappointment and collapse has spread among terrorists in Hama.
The Xeber24 news website, meantime, pointed to Turkey's support for Sarout, and said after he left Northern Homs for Turkey in 2016, he returned to Idlib with Turkey's backup to lead the terrorist groups.
Meantime, after Sarout was severely injured in battle with the Syrian Army in Northern Hama over the past two days, he was transferred to one of the best hospitals in Turkey equipped with expert medical teams. Yet, reports said despite all medical efforts in Turkey, the top commander has lost his life.
Also media reports said that Tahrir al-Sham and Jeish al-Izza as well as pro-militant White Helmets were preparing for a false-flag chemical scenario on six different locations in Northern Hama to accuse the Syrian Army later.
The Arabic-language website of Russian Sputnik news agency quoted informed sources in Idlib province as saying that Tahrir al-Sham terrorists have transferred three chlorine capsules to Northern Hama from one of their headquarters in Jbal al-Zawiyeh in Southern Idlib.
The sources said that the chlorine gas capsules have been handed over to one of Jeish al-Izza commanders near the contact lines with the Syrian Army in Kafar Zita town.
They also said that Jeish al-Izza terrorists will probably conduct chemical attacks on residential areas in Eastern Kafar Zita, Latamin, al-Sayyad, Lahaya and the surrounding areas of the cities of Mourek and Khan Sheikhoun near the Syrian Army's contract line to be able to control the crime scene and make filming easier for them.
According to different media, security and diplomatic reports, Jeish al-Izza terrorists have several underground and secret warehouses containing different kinds of chlorine-mounted missiles in Northern and Northwestern Hama, including interconnected tunnels between Kafar Zita, al-Latamaneh and Southern Latmin farms.
Meantime, the terrorist groups intend to launch chemical attack in Idlib province in a false flag operation against the Syrian army to set the stage for military intervention by the West and the US on Syria.
The US and the Syrian Democratic Forces are cooperating with each other to train commando forces for suppressing popular uprisings in Eastern Euphrates as tensions are on rise in the region, the Arabic-language media outlets said.
The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper quoted opposition sources as saying that the SDF is training elite forces known as Commando Forces in Deir Ezzur province.
The sources noted that about 100 militants are undergoing special combat and military tactics training under the monitoring of the US in al-Amar oil zone in Eastern Deir Ezzur for a period of two months to prepare them for crushing popular uprisings in Eastern Euphrates.
Meantime, the Arabic-language al-Khabour news website reported that after the recent popular protests in Eastern Syria, the SDF has formed a formation named 'Anti-Riot Forces'.
The Deir Ezzur 24 news website also reported that the SDF had blocked vital al-Salehieh crossing between its controlled areas and the regions controlled by the Syrian Army.
The people's protests demanding expulsion of the SDF have recently increased in areas under the control of the Kurdish forces in Eastern Syria after SDF's measures against civilians.
Turkey ordered Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at to reinforce strategic military positions in Jbal al-Zawiyeh in Idlib province after it turned down Russia's demand for withdrawing militants from the region.
According to Fars News Agancy, the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper wrote that with an aim to confront the Syrian Army in Northern Hama, Tahrir al-Sham has sent large volumes of its military equipment to al-Jolmeh to North of Mahradeh.
"Turkey's intelligence body has asked Tahrir al-Sham and other terrorist groups in Northern Syria to reinforce its defense lines, including 50 towns and villages up to the city of Ariha in Aleppo-Lattakia international highway as clean-up operation by the Syrian and Russian armies in Jabal al-Zawiyeh in Idlib is imminent," al-Watan quoted local and opposition sources in Idlib as saying.
The sources reiterated that Turkey's operations room in Shir Mughar region in Jabal Shahshabou in Northern Hama where terrorists are constantly supported in terms of weapons, ammunition and intelligence has warned terrorists that the Syrian army might soon capture Jbal Shahshabou which overlooks Sahl al-Ghab in Northwestern Hama and towns to the South of Idlib and then advance towards Jabal al-Zawiyeh.
The al-Watan newspaper also further quoted the sources as saying that Russia had recently asked Turkey to make terrorists retreat from Jbal Shahshabou region in Northwestern Hama and Kabani town in Northeastern Lattakia which are regarded as the Southern and Western gates of Idlib, but Ankara has strongly turned down the demand.
Meantime, the Arabic-language al-Youm news website quoted media activists in Idlib province as saying that after supplying advanced weapons to terrorists, Ankara has ordered them to launch new attacks in Northern Hama to recapture the town of al-Saqilbieh.
