BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 P.M.) – Another high ranking rebel commander was assassinated in northwest Syria this week after a roadside bomb struck the leader’s vehicle.

According to opposition activists via social media, the commander of the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) Sultan Murad Brigade was killed on Wednesday when his vehicle struck an IED along a road in Afrin city.

In addition to the death of the Sultan Murad Brigade commander, two of his associates were also among the dead.

No group has claimed responsibility for this attack yet.

Recently, the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) have carried out several attacks against the Turkish-backed rebels in the Afrin region.

These attacks have ranged from targeted assassinations to ambushes against the Turkish-backed rebels.
