Yesterday, several government missiles struck rebel-held areas in East Ghouta (Damascus) with the opposition claiming 23 civilians to have been killed.

However, it has now been revealed to al-Masdar that Jaish al-Islam commander Muhammad Maher Omar Buwiydani was killed in the artillery attack which struck near al-Rahman Mosque in downtown Douma.

This Islamist rebel commander was heavily involved in the Adra massacre (December, 2013) which in collaboration with Jabhat al-Nusra saw at least 40 civilians from religious minorities executed at point-blank range.

Muhammad Maher Omar Buwiydani is also the cousin of the current Jaish al-Islam leader Issam Buwiydani and was considered his right hand, advising him on military matters in East Ghouta.

Furthermore, at least 5 rebel fighters of Jaish al-Islam were killed in yesterday’s attack. 3 of the names have obtained by al-Masdar:
-Bilal Saryol
-Rateb al-Dalati
-Teser Azzo

A military source in Damascus said that yesterday’s attack on Douma was in fact a special mission by the Syrian Arab Army after they were informed on the whereabouts of the rebel commander through local informants.
