BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 P.M.) – The leader of the pro-government “Golani Regiment” (Fouj Al-Joulan) has succumbed to the wounds he sustained during Friday’s assassination attempt in the Golan Heights city of Khan ‘Arnabeh.

The commander of the Golani Regiment, Majd Hayloun (AKA “Abu Mohimon”), was the target of a suicide bombing Friday night that initially claimed the lives of two of his men.

Hayloun was expected to make a full recovery, as his wounds were not believed to be life threatening by the doctors examining him; however, his condition drastically changed overnight.

When the war broke-out in 2011, Hayloun and his men were part of the Syrian Opposition, but he would later defect to the government’s side in 2013.
