Despite terrorist sources claiming over the last several days that the renowned Druze General Issam Zahreddine had died in battle, a video released just hours ago show him alive and well in the eastern Syrian of Deir Ez-Zor.

Deir Ez-Zor has been under a heavy offensive from ISIS forces. The city is an enclave of government held territory surrounded by ISIS.

Despite being wounded in 2013, the renowned general is known for going on the front line with the soldiers under his command, eating the same food as his soldiers and sleeping in the same conditions. The General is known to be a real motivator and has been one of Syria’s most successful military leaders during this conflict that has plagued Syria since 2011.

The General’s son is also fighting with the Republican Guards 104th Brigade in Deir Ez-Zor
