SYRIA: Coalition drone kills a leader of Hurras al-Din in Idlib; Hayat Tahrir al-Sham raises price of fuel in Idlib and congratulates Taliban

IDLIB, Syria — On Monday, a drone of the U.S.-led International Coalition targeted a car in the Al-Qusor neighborhood of Idlib city in northwestern Syria with three missiles, killing a number of people, including Abu Sayyaf al-Tunisi, a leader of the Hurras al-Din, Al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, sources said.

In related news, for the fourth time in a row, the Watad Company, affiliated with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), raised the price of fuel citing the high exchange rate of the U.S. Dollar against the Turkish Lira. The raising of fuel prices will invariably increase the suffering of the population in Idlib as Watad is the only supplier of fuel in the city.

In an unexpected statement, HTS issued a message of congratulation to the Taliban for the signing of a peace agreement with the U.S. and Afghan governments.
