Terrorist group Fatah Al-Islam says its leader has been killed in Damascus.
The organisation was involved in a war with the Lebanese army in Tripoli last year. It was also accused of a number of car bombings in Beirut.
Their leader Shaker Al-Abssi was jailed in Syria many years ago. After his release he fled to Lebanon.
Now, it seems, he made it back into Syria – possibly during the fighting in Lebanon last year.
But the interesting thing is where he was killed – the southern suburb of Jaramana. That’s where a car bomb killed seventeen people two months ago.
The group says he was killed in an ambush by Syrian security forces.
