A huge explosion in a town in northwest Syria Tuesday evening wiped out the senior leadership of the powerful Ahrar al-Sham militia, killing its leader Hassan Abboud and more than two dozen figures from the Salafist-jihadist group.An anti-regime, Syrian observer of the Syrian conflict told The Daily Star that Abboud and his militia had "many enemies," ranging from the Syrian regime to the Al-Qaeda affiliate the Nusra Front, as well as ISIS.While both Al-Qaeda affiliates have been described as the best-organized and funded militias operating in the Syrian war, the observer said that Ahrar al-Sham was in some ways as disciplined, if not more so, than its rivals.
