Al Nusra leader in critical condition following airstrike, says Russian ministry

Ahmad al-Ghizai, al-Julani's close aid and head of security, was also killed, along with about 50 militants from the commanders' security detail, Konashenkov said.

The air strike came after Russia's military intelligence uncovered the time and place of a meeting of the leaders of the Nusra Front, including its head Abu Mohammad al-Golani, on October 3, defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashekov said in a statement.

According to reports, Russia's Aerospace Forces have critically wounded al-Joulani in Syria, and killed 12 field commanders of the terrorist group which controls Idlib Governorate.

Since 2017, it dominates a coalition of jihadist factions called Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

There was no immediate comment from jihadist sources on the Russian claim.

Over the past months Russian Federation has claimed to have killed several top jihadist commanders.

Moscow has blamed the al-Qaida-linked group for attacking Russian military police in Syria's western Hama province last month.

Last month Russian Federation claimed to have killed several top IS commanders in an air strike including the US-trained "minister of war" Gulmurod Khalimov.

On October 3, Russian intelligence "uncovered the time and place of the Al-Nusra leadership meeting" led by Juliani, the statement said.

Turkey, Russia, and Iran are making major efforts to reduce fighting in and around Idlib, with a deal in the Astana peace talks bringing most of the rebels on board.
