PanARMENIAN.Net - A high ranking militant commander was executed by another rival group in the Idlib Governorate on Wednesday, February 28, as tensions continue to rise between Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jabhat Tahrir Souriya, Al-Masdar News reports.

According to pro-opposition activists, Ahrar Al-Sham’s Shariah chief, Hassan Soufan, was executed by a group of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham fighters after he reached one of their checkpoints in Idlib city.
