Suhail al-Hassan, the commander of Bashar Assad regime’s 25th Special Mission Forces Division, also known as “Tiger Forces,” was reportedly wounded in a Turkish drone strike in the town of Saraqib, in eastern Idlib, on Wednesday, reports said.
Several news outlets cited local sources to report that the convoy of al-Hassan, known for his close ties with Russia, was hit by a Turkish unmanned aerial vehicle, taking part in Turkey’s Operation Spring Shield.
Al-Hassan was seriously wounded in the attack, the sources said.
In an interview last week, al-Hassan claimed that Turkey’s real target was to capture Aleppo. “Istanbul would fall before Aleppo," he said.
