BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – One of the highest ranking commanders of Faylaq Al-Rahman was killed in the East Ghouta region of Damascus, today, pro-opposition activists reported.

The Faylaq Al-Rahman commander, Abu ‘Ali Dhiya Al-Shaghouri, was reportedly killed during the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) attack on the Jobar-‘Ayn Tarma axis, which is located at the western corridor of the East Ghouta region.

Shaghouri was considered the chief of staff of Faylaq Al-Rahman, making him one of the most powerful members of this Free Syrian Army (FSA) faction.

No further details were released.

  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
