Syrian rebels fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) in the north of the country on Wednesday killed a jihadist leader in the town of Saraqeb, activists said.Abul Baraa, a Belgian jihadist of Arab origin, last week warned Syrian rebels to halt an anti-ISIS offensive they launched early January or face suicide attacks against their positions.Since his January 6 warning, Islamist and moderate rebel positions have been hit by jihadists' suicide attacks -- mostly car bombs -- in Aleppo, Idlib and Raqqa provinces, which have killed dozens of opposition fighters. More than 700 jihadist and rebel fighters have been killed in 12 days of combat pitting the two sides against each other.Earlier that day, rebels fighting the jihadists withdrew from the province.
