The Syrian Martyrs website, identified a single non-combatant victim of a coalition strike in Aleppo. He was also named by the Damascus Centre for Human Rights Research who said he was originally from Idlib and didn’t specify if he was a civilian or a militant.
However, all other sources described al Jolani as a combatant (sometimes known as ‘The Emir of Jabhat Al Nusra in Aleppo’), who fought with the Al Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front. He was described as killed in an assault by the Syrian Army on January 25th.
In a third version of events, the Siraj agency claimed Abu Khadija actually died on January 28th, succumbing to injuries received on January 19th in a coalition airstrike on his vehicle. Another Nusra Front commander, Abu Omar al-Hamwi, reportedly died at the scene. How the militant commander was then able to tweet four days later is unclear.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
