At least 11 jihadi fighters have been killed, 9 others severely injured as a landmine exploded in their vehicle in the town of Murak, located nearly 30 km to the north of Hama.

According to local sources, 20 militants from Jund al-Aqsa Salafi group – all of them are descendants of Jabal –al-Zawiya – were being transported in a bus when a landmine previously planted by the Syrian Army went off.

The sources said that government troops have set up dozens of landmines and IEDs before being driven out of the town in November 2015.

Jund al-Aqsa is a radical group formerly affiliated with Jabhet al-Nusra. The group jointly fought alongside ISIS terror group in the 2016 Khanasir offensive.

The title of this article and the content do NOT match. “Scores” means a multiple of 20. So, 40, 60, 100, etc, would comprise “scores,” not 11 people. The title is completely false and misleading. is that intentional?

The SAME problem with another article written by the same al-Masdar “reporter.” “Iraqi leader to sue over Chilcot Report.” According to the article’s content, no one is suing anyone. Sadr simply recommended that the Iraqi judiciary look into it and possibly take action. That is a huge difference from what the title claims.

Maybe will you notice that writers aren’t english or muricans, so language may not be as accurate you may have the habit if you speak english as a native of these countries…
Could you express yourself as good into a 2nd or 3rd language?

I would also like to see 20,40,60 terrorists dead, but why don’t you join the SAA and help them kill more of the vermin?

Your homepage is acting up; the arrows don’t work, where we usually scroll across and look at the headlines.

Scores? The article says 11 were killed. A score is 20. If it killed “scores”, it would have killed at least 40 or 60.
