The Saudi-backed Jaysh Al-Islam executed yesterday Monday leader of Jaysh Al-Wafaa (The Army of Loyalists), Khalid Al-Deri, in the northeastern city of Doma.
Al-Deri was arrested by Zahran Alloush’s men late on May along with his assistant in Tal Kirdi.
Jaysh Al-Wafaa is an armed faction established on January 2015 in Eastern Ghouta to fight Jaysh Al-Islam, led by Zahran Alloush. Anti-government factions say that ‘Jaysh Al-Wafaa’ was founded by Syrian government to fight Ghouta rebels, after luring hundreds of locals.
Al-Deri was crucified just outside the Grand Mosque in Doma and then shot dead; his body roamed the city as crowds rallied.
