DAMASCUS, SYRUA (2:50 P.M.) – Major-general Ali al-Hussein, chief of the SAA’s 11th Armored Division, passed away of a heart attack in the eastern city of Deir Ezzor.

Hessian was leading the battles against the Islamic State in the bordering city of Albu Kamal when he experienced a heart failure.

The city came under a massive attack launched by ISIS jihadists who managed to temporarily seize parts of it before driven out by the Syrian Army.

Meanwhile, Iraq’s popular Mobilization Units tracked down the Islamic State militants and engaged in a firefight with them inside the Syrian village of al-Atshana.

God rest his soul. Serving to the end. I can only admire that and that’s coming from one who’s a non-Muslim.

So he has been killed or died of an heart attack? These are two completely different ways to leave this (crazy) world.
