BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The infamous jihadist leader, Abdullah Muhaysni, was nearly killed on Tuesday when the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) bombed his position in northern Hama.
The Saudi national was critically wounded during the bombing, but he is expected to make a full recovery, opposition activists reported on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Muhaysni’s close confidant Abu Assad was among the five militants killed by the Syrian Air Force in northern Hama.
Muhaysni has now survived a number of assassination attempts and bombings in northwestern Syria since 2013.
The jihadist leader has recently launched a fundraising campaign to help fund the militant fortifications in the Idlib and Hama governorates.
