Notorious Syrian Terrorist Abu Yarub Al-Athari Killed by an LNA Airstrike Near Sirte – Al Marsad

Syrian terrorist Samer Al-Atrash, aka “Abu Yarub Al-Athari”, was killed in an LNA airstrike west of Sirte, along with several of his comrades, while attacking the city with the militants of the Government of National Accord (GNA).

(Libya, 11 June 2020) – Accounts close to the so-called Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (commonly referred to as Tahrir al-Sham, and formerly Al-Nusra Front) mourned Abu Yarub, while some of his comrades eulogised him by publishing photos of him in Libya in battles south of Tripoli over the past months.

Available information on the terrorist Abu Yarub indicates that he settled in Idlib after the defeat of the terrorist organizations in his hometown Aleppo, where he was born in 1990. He had arrived in Mitiga airport from the Turkish Gaziantep base. He had been fighting in Libya for months until the LNA airstrike killed him on 9 June. His body was moved to Misrata.

Abu Yarub is one of the most notorious Syrian mercenaries and terrorists in Libya. Libyans first came to know about his presence in Libya from a comment on a post of a mobile company in “Al-Madar Street” in Tripoli inquiring if it had a delivery service of Samsung phones to the Airport Road, where he was stationed with his group. This tip led to Libyans discovering him and his page with extremist content.

Hundreds of Syrian mercenaries are still stationed in the homes of citizens in residential neighborhoods and buildings in the Sidra and Salah al-Din areas south of Tripoli. These citizens have returned to their homes to find them safe and free but occupied by Syrian gunmen. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) there are now over 12,000 Syrian militants supporting the GNA.

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Erdogan, whose regime sent these Syrian factions to Libya, vowed to “liberate” Sirte because of its important oil wells. He explained his aims in a recent interview pointing at the map of Libya and explaining the field situation.

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, led by the Abu Muhammad al-Golani, who is wanted for terrorism, has close connections with the Turkish state and security and intelligence services.

The following are the comments of the terrorist Abu Yarub while requesting the delivery of a mobile phone from a company in Tripoli to the Airport Road:
