BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:05 A.M.) – The prominent commander of the Syrian Arab Army’s Al-Qassem Group, General Ghassan Iskendar Taraf, was badly injured on Wednesday when his vehicle struck a land mine placed by the Islamic State (ISIL) in the western countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

According to reports from Deir Ezzor, General Taraf (AKA “Al-Qassem”) suffered serious wounds to his legs, resulting in his immediate hospitalization in the provincial capital.

General Taraf is considered one of the Syrian Army’s most elite and battle-hardened commanders; he has served on several fronts in the past and was recently transferred Deir Ezzor in 2016.

The indomitable spirit of such men always overcomes their wounds.
I trust that he is able to heal his injuries speedily .

The world owes men such as Ghassan Iskendar Taraf much gratitude,for without them chaos would reign for the benefit of the Zionist 0.01%.
