    A senior leader of the group Tahrir al-Sham was wounded in a airstrike, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

    Abu Mohamad al-Golani was critically injured in the strike and is said to have lost one of his hands:

    Golani and his men had been bombed by two Russian planes on Oct. 3, Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement, saying the militant leader who was the head of the Nusra Front before it merged with other groups to form Tahrir al-Sham, had been badly hurt.

    “As a result of the strike, the Nusra Front leader, Abu Mohamad al-Golani, sustained numerous shrapnel wounds and, having lost an arm, is in a critical condition, according to information from several independent sources,” Konashenkov said.
