A Syrian leader of an Islamic terror group blew himself up at a Syrian border post on the Lebanese border after a gunbattle with Syrian security forces on Tuesday, the Syrian government said. A Syrian Interior Ministry statement said Omar Abdullah, 28-year-old leader of the Islamic group "Tawheed and Jihad", was attempting to cross into Lebanon at the Jdeidet Yabous border post with fake documents. The statement said he opened fire on security forces and attempted to escape. After a chase, Abdullah detonated his explosive belt, killing himself and wounding two members of the Syrian security forces.
