After months of stalemate in Daraa, the ISIS affiliate ‘Jaish Khaled Bin Al-Walid’ smuggled a suicide bomber behind enemy lines this evening and blew up the rebel headquarters in Inkhil, a town in Syria’s southern governorate of Daraa.

The attack killed seven rebel commanders and targeted a meeting between Southern Front factions loosely connected to the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Fives of the commander names have been obtained by Al-Masdar News; Fayez Tuwyres, Hussam Al-Nasser, Atef Abou Halab, Nizal Al-Shabli, and Abou Muhannad Al-Galehi – the latter commander was chief of the FSA-linked Mujahideen Horan Brigade.

A further 20, mostly rebel fighters, were killed during the explosion too.

Meanwhile, the ISIS suicide bomber has been identified as a man called Abou Hamza, according to an Islamic State media outlet. His picture can be seen here:

Jaish Khaled Bin Al-Walid, Daraa’s ISIS affiliate, was formed in May 2016 after the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade and the Islamic Muthanna Movement merged to one group fighting under the Islamic State banner.

Remarkably, ISIS still controls a dozen village on the border with Israel in southwestern Daraa. The area came under Islamic State control after hundreds of Islamist fighters defected from the Syrian Opposition in 2014.

I like when the jihadists weaken each other. Saves trouble for the Syrian army.

I don’t think so : Israel had less problems with Bachir’s Syria than with Egypt or Jordan although they have peace treaties : Syria beeing really secular and as Bachir (as anyone with a normally functionnal brain) doesn’t likes islamists, they were less active than in these two countries. In other terms, “zionists” hadn’t a real interest into f*****g Syria… Better look for responsibles in Riyadh, Doha or Ankara and maybe Washington although Dr.Frankenstein had already more than a problem with his first monster, I hope they haven’t been enough stupid to do it again, in fact, IS is more… Read more »

Daeshbagsux i think your wrong. Especialy ISIS is linked to the zionist i think. First of all is the fact, that if they ware real treat for Israel they was going to be long gone in a rain of missles – Israely style(see Gaza). Second is their very succesfull fighting tactics – the american generals did proove last 50 years that they just dont have such skills. 3rd is that Syrian and Bashar are one of the bigest enemies of Israel with his family wars agains them and the Golan Heights occupied by Israel, originaly owned by Syria. 4th is… Read more »

Stop smoking dope : HAARP station’s in Alaska and is far to be very effective. BTW, the principle is to warm high altitude icy-water particles to make rain. Alaska is interesting as it has nearly permanent huge nuages covering… I bet many people would be more than happy if there was a way to make rain fall in these mostly desert areas 🙂 Climate control is far to be achieved and is still sci-fi…

ISIS does not “control a dozen villages on the border with Israel“, it controls them on the UNDOF line to illegally-occupied Golan. It’s an important distinction, unless Al Masdar has somehow made a gift of sovereign Syrian territory to the Zionist Abomination.
