The Nusra Front has arrested the Commander of the Khalid Ibn Al-Walid Brigade, Hassan Al-Ashtar, who is affiliated to the Free Syrian Army, in Rastan, a Qassioun News correspondent reported.


According to the report, Ashtar was injured and tried to flee to the countryside, east of the city. The Nusra Front, however, pursued and arrested him. Having arrested a number of the brigade leaders, the Nusra Front then withdrew from the city.
