BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – One of the highest ranking commanders in the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), General Mohammad Khaddour, barely escaped death on Tuesday after an Islamic State (ISIL) faction opened fire on his convoy in western Deir Ezzor.

According to a Syrian Army source in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, General Khaddour was being transported through the recently liberated Thardeh Mountains, Tuesday, when a group of ISIL terrorists shot-up the vehicles traveling in this military convoy.

The source added that the high ranking Syrian general was almost killed by the attack, as he was sitting in the front seat of the vehicle that was targeted by the Islamic State terrorists.

General Khaddour is considered a very important commander to the Syrian Army’s High Command, despite the fact he is viewed unfavorably by many of the soldiers serving under him.

Unlike Major General Issam Zahreddine, General Khaddour rarely travels to the front-lines and rarely converses with non-officers; instead, he can usually be found at his headquarters in the city, where is often secluded from he infantry.

Who really gives a toss on his etiquette?, well yes – i suppose he could be a bit more “ballsy” and converse with his troops like the late great Erwin Rommel did in WW2, but as long as ISIS, foreign Jihadists proxys and the rest of the scum are removed in Deir Ezzor, who gives a f**k?. Give the guy some raw opium or some captagon pills and tell him to engage with his men more.

That reads more like a failed assassination than an ISIS attack.

Thank GOD that his life was spared. He didn’t reach that position by not having a lot going for him.
