Senior commander of Jabhet Fateh al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) was killed by a missile fired from a drone –believed to be affiliated with the US-led coalition– in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib.

Ahmad Salamah Mabrouk, aka Abu al-Faraj al-Massri, was killed along with two of his companions when a missile hit their car in a village near Jisr al-Shogour.

Video footage show consequences of drone airstrike and alleged destroyed cars of Top al-Qaeda leader.

Al-Marsi appeared in a video recording next to al-Nusra chief in Syria, Abu Mohammed al-Jolani, when the group changed its name to Jabhet Fateh al-Sham last August.

Al-Nusra-led Jaish al-Fateh has taken over Idlib in major offensive last year.

Early U.S. military stopped an air raid against ISIS in Syria after Russian officials said it may have bombed Syrian soldiers.
