A US-led coalition air strike in northwestern Syria killed a top leader of al-Qaeda splinter group JabhatFateh al-Sham on Wednesday. Four other militants of the group were also killed in the strike on Idlib governorate, local reports said.

Abu Ibrahim al-Tunisi, the Tunisian so-called jihadist, was reportedly a leading member of JabhatFateh al-Sham, formerly the al-Nusra Front.

US-led forces have targeted the splinter group’s leadership in Syria in the past as well. In early January, the coalition succeeded in eliminating Abu Omar al-Turkistani, a military commander, and Abu Ali al-Tunisi, a security official.
