DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:30 A.M.) – On Wednesday, a huge explosion rocked the ISIS-held town of Jallayn in southern Syria, resulting in the death of at least six jihadist commanders who were gathered for a meeting to discuss a coming offensive in western Daraa.

Reports regarding the incident are conflicting; some indicate a US warplane was involved while others claim a car bomb violently interrupted the meeting.

Nevertheless, six ISIS field commanders were confirmed dead due to the attack, namely: Abu Hamza Al-Komah, Abu Madeen, Abu Qassourah, Abu Oubidah Al-Shami, Ahmad Al-Ghazi and Abu Hashem.

The latter jihadist warlord represents the leading Islamic State Emir for Jaish Khalid Ibn Al-Walid, a jihadist group that swore allegiance to Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi back in 2014.

Due to a surprise blitz offensive earlier this year, Jaish Khalid Ibn Al-Walid controls some 25 villages and towns that are anchored on the border with Israel and Jordan in southwestern Syria. The jihadist group regularly clashes with rebel factions and is known to enforce brutal religious laws on civilians living under its rule.

bullshit, sounds like the US and allies (legion of Doom) trying to save face. unless russia or syria or iran comments on the matter i dont believe a word of it. they probably cut them a check and told them to go home so they can use them for their next BS “terrorist attack” or fake a*s “civil war” in another peaceful country. you can always tell when their jiving us cause they never have pics when the US is being sneaky, but when they’re killing the syrians, it’s pics,videos, h**l even commercials sponsered by them.
