Leader of Turkish-backed faction survives assassination in Aleppo’s Azaz  

ALEPPO, Syria (North Press) – A leader in the Levant Front (al-Jabha al-Shamiyah) survived an assassination attempt on Wednesday on the Jariz- Azaz road in the northern Aleppo countryside.  

A special source told North Press that Muhammad Kabso, known as Abu Sayyaf Kbso survived an assassination attempt on the road of the town of Jariz, in east Azaz.

The source added that unknown gunmen fired a barrage of bullets randomly at Kabso’s car, however, he passed unhurt. Following that, Military Police and the Levant Front went on alert in the area.

Since July 2012, the city of Azaz and its countryside are under the control of opposition factions of the Syrian National Army (SNA).

On September 11, a leader of an opposition faction affiliated with Turkey survived an assassination attempt as an IED planted beneath his car by unknown gunmen in an IDP camp close to the town of Qah in Idlib. 

Areas held by Turkish forces and their affiliated SNA factions, witness security chaos, including arrests, kidnappings, thefts and successive murders in light of the factions’ disability to maintain security.
