BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – A high-ranking Syrian militant commander was reportedly killed in the ongoing conflict in the Karabakh region, opposition activists reported on Tuesday.

According to the reports, one of the highest ranking commanders of the Turkish-backed Hamza Division, Adel al-Shaher, who is known by the nom de guerre “Abu Shaher”, was reportedly killed recently while fighting for the Azerbaijani Armed Forces in the Karabakh region.

Al-Shaher took part in several battles over the years inside Syria, as he led the Hamza Division in the northern part of the country.

His death in the ongoing conflict in Karabakh will prove to be a major loss for the Hamza Division and for the Turkish-backed forces in Syria.

It should be noted that the Hamza Division is one of the largest factions inside the Turkish-backed “Syrian National Army” (SNA), which operations in the northern governorates of Syria.

Welcome to Mountain Karabakh. According to an official Azeri statement of the local tourist office, Adel al-Shaher, who was known to his friends as Abu Saher, was on a peaceful hiking tour during his wellness holidays in the mountains. He enjoyed a relaxing time out from his everyday life and looked forward to the conclusion of a sporty day in a wellness spa. No matter the season the body deserves rest and relaxation. Whether a sauna, massage, swimming, steam bath or simply lying down and enjoying the view, there are plenty of opportunities to unwind in the Mountain Karabakh region. Then… Read more »

“His death in the ongoing conflict in Karabakh will prove to be a major loss for the Hamza Division and for the Turkish-backed forces in Syria.”

And that is why the SAA and Russians should take advantage of the situation in Syria. With many terrorists & terrorists leaders gone, they should try to regain territory. Be proactive & assertive.

A loss for al-Hamza but none for humanity and Syria.

Two things worth noticing. First, who are these “opposition activists” who leaked the news? The Hamza outfit is under Turkey’s control (whether or not it is still being armed and trained by the Americans) and he is said to have been killed in Nagorno-Karabakh where, we have been firmly assured, there are no, repeat no, fighters transferred from Syria to do battle with Christian Armenians. (Armenia of course has allegedly managed to smuggle thousands of Syrians into the enclave, presumably through Turkey or Iran, but let that pass). So, this news cannot be confirmed by Azerbaijan or Turkey without showing… Read more »

And Turkey is also not intervening, it’s why F-16s are seen on Azeri airports 😉 And I’m king Louis XV with 60+ mistresses…

OT German media claim French army prefers alliance to Turkey because that has that traditional anti Habsburg -anti German Austrian 17.th century tradition – and are dissatisfied with Macron’s policy of confronting Turkey. What is your opinion?

p.s. I was utterly surprise about this pro maritime nations anti EU treasonous thought.

Armenian propaganda or maybe ground based fact? Anti Syrian info war networks were trained and equipped by the maritime geo-strategic school of thought. And these networks were created to work no matter who controls the area where the networks operate. The new anti Turkish slant can either indicate a shift in thought within the school that originally created and funded these networks, that part of the network went out of control and follows its own agenda.or started to issue unbiased info and turned from a foreign propaganda asset into a free journalism source. Either other sources substantiate the claim that… Read more »
