The military commander of the Nusra Front and several other top leaders have been killed in a suspected airstrike in Syria's Idlib province, the group and multiple other sources said Thursday.There were conflicting accounts of when and where the airstrike occurred, as well as who may have been responsible for the attack that killed the group's military commander Abu Humam al-Suri.Syria' state news agency SANA said a "special operation" by the army had targeted the village of Habeet, where a meeting of the Al-Qaeda affiliate's top leaders was underway, but gave no other details. The news came roughly one week after Nusra Front militants clashed with a U.S.-backed rebel group, the Hazm Movement, in western Aleppo province and parts of Idlib in a standoff that finally saw Hazm disband.
