A local chief of Al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate the Nusra Front has died in an apparent assassination after a bomb went off in his car, an activist group said Saturday.The fighting between Nusra and other rebels began in early July, with a particularly bloody battle breaking out in the Jisr al-Shugur region of Idlib a week ago.Rebels in the region have accused Nusra of trying to push them out of Idlib so the group can create an "Islamic emirate" to rival the "Islamic caliphate" that IS has declared in parts of Syria and Iraq under its control.
