The leader of the Ahrar al-Sham rebel group has been killed along with at least 20 of his commanders in a suicide attack on a high-level meeting in Syria’s Idlib province, reports say.

Local activist sources said Hassan Aboud was killed on Tuesday as he met other Ahrar leaders in the village of Ram Hamdan.

Ahrar has about 20,000 fighters, was part of the Islamic Front alliance formed to counter the Islamic State group, and has been involved in battles against both the Asad government and the Islamic State.

Another of the group’s leaders, Abu Khaled al-Suri, was killed by the Islamic State earlier this year.

It is not known who staged the attack.

    I guess Assad must be the luckiest son of a bitch alive. all these islamic groups pro and con are very confusing. Assad uses these propaganda to further his own violance against the foreigners and get even with his people. But again Syria wanted to demolish Lebanon and they have done very good job at it. but unfortunately for them it turned back and nowdays everyone who messed with lebanon is living in chaos.. I tell ISIS do not mess with us because we can wreak vengance back on you and make your life hell on earth..
