Rebel commander al-Wawi freed after days of abduction

  

Rebels Military council secretary and Ababeel brigade commander Capt. Ammar al-Wawi has been freed after 5 days of abduction near Turkish border by unknown Armed group, his brother said on his Facebook page.

Capt. Al-Wawi and his 3 accompaniers were heading Syrian rebel-held areas near Bab al-Hawa border town, from the Turkish side, 5 days ago before losing the contact with them.  

Last week two officers from the Joint Chiefs of Staff were killed by an armed group in Idlib province during delivering Aid and food.

Activists expressed state of chaos controlling rebel-held areas near the Turkish borders, the abduction and looting acts have been escalated.

Syria's Islamic Front seized Bab al-Hawa crossing Tuesday from other rebels, including brigades loyal to FSA.

Last week the Islamic Front rejected the authority of the FSA, which was the first major rebel force formed after the outbreak of Syria's civil war and was made up of army deserters and civilians.

The IF was formed last month by six rebel groups that merged with the goal of overthrowing the Assad regime and establishing an Islamic state.

It does not include Al-Nusra Front or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) -- two jihadist rebel groups linked to Al-Qaeda.
