DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:00 A.M.) – On Monday, rebel forces united under the ‘Southern Front’ rebel coalition began a new round of attacks at a jihadist pocket in western Daraa where the ISIS-linked group Jaish Khalid ibn al-Walid is present on the border with Israel.

Using technicals, machineguns, mortar fire and rocket launchers, Islamic State insurgents battled it out with Free Syrian Army (FSA) factions in rural Daraa amid tit-for-tat clashes that did not yield any substantial gains for either party.

Following the skirmishes, the media wing of the aforementioned ISIS group released pictures from the battle, revealing it had decapitated several FSA members.

Last week, dozens of FSA prisoners of war were executed – including a renown commander – due to increased rebel aggression on towns controlled by Jaish Khalid ibn al-Walid.

  1. USIS has won the war against modern human decency and upward morality. Secular governments are toppled, stable societies bombed, thousands killed, millions economically sanctioned, all in the name of securing their elites interests and maintaining western hegemony as the only dominant force on this planet.
