Syrian activists: Bomb kills local al-Qaida leader

Published: 05.06.14, 15:27 / Israel News

BEIRUT - A roadside bomb has killed a local al-Qaida leader and his wife, an attack that may ignite new infighting between rebel groups in Syria, Syrian activists said Tuesday.


Ali al-Nuaimi of the Nusra Front, al-Qaida's affiliate in Syria, and his wife were killed overnight near the town of Busra al-Sham in southern Daraa province, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.


The Observatory said the killing was an "assassination." It came just days after Nusra fighters seized a controversial Western-backed Syrian military commander, Ahmad al-Nuaimi. It's unclear if the two men are related. (AP)
