Local al-Qaida leader in Syria killed in blast

Published: 05.06.14, 19:12 / Israel News

A roadside bomb in Syria killed a local al-Qaida leader and his wife, activists said Tuesday, an attack that could ignite a new round of infighting among disparate rebel groups in the country.


The commander, identified as Ali al-Nuaimi of the Nusra Front, was killed in the southern province of Daraa, pro-rebel Sham News Network reported. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also described the killing as an "assassination."
