Urfa, Turkey – Opposition fighters of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) announced on Thursday the killing of two leading members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in the city of Manbij in Aleppo countryside, north of Syria.
Both Abu Hashim Jazrawi, military commander of ISIL in Manbij, and Abu Munzir, chief of real estate in the ranks of ISIL group, were reported dead in an ambush laid by FSA fighters near the Tishreen dam in Manbij city while returning from Raqqa province on Thursday, a source from the FSA forces told ARA News.
Meanwhile, the ISIL group executed on Wednesday afternoon the FSA fighter Abdulfattah al-Shallal in the ISIL-held city of Raqqa. Al-Shallal was captured by ISIL militants nearly four months ago during clashes with the FSA.
Al-Shallal was fighting in the ranks of the FSA-linked Saraya al-Furat brigade before being captured and executed by ISIL.
