Red on Red: Al Nusrah Front Leader Killed in Syria

Just a quick note as I have to finish eating this popcorn before it gets cold. The caveat here is that the source is Iranian:

Syrian army forces have killed Adnan al-Haj Ali better known as Abi Mohammd Joulani, leader of al-Nusra Front in Syria, announced a Syrian opposition source affiliated with Ahfad bani Omaiya in Rif, Damascus....

Reports had it that al-Haj Ali and his Syrian deputy Mostafa Al-Badawi have been killed in an air attack by a Syrian MiG fighter jet.

Al-Badawi was one of al-Qaeda high ranking authorities, who commanded thousands of forces the Front employed in Syria. He was from Homs and cooperated with active terrorist groups in Persian Gulf littoral Arab countries to bring Arab gunmen into Syria.
