Several rebel commanders were killed by a missile fired from an unidentified drone on their vehicles in the northwestern city of Idlib, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
Local sources said that among the killed is a senior commander from Jabhet Fateh al-Sham (formerly al-Nusra Front), without mentioning his name.

Two weeks ago, Ahmad Salamah Mabrouk, aka Abu al-Faraj al-Massri, a notorious Nusra commander was killed along with two of his companions when a missile hit their car in a village near Jisr al-Shogour.
Al-Marsi appeared in a video recording next to al-Nusra chief in Syria, Abu Mohammed al-Jolani, when the group changed its name to Jabhet Fateh al-Sham last August.
The drone which killed al-Masri is believed to be affiliated with the US-led coalition.
