BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 A.M.) – A high-ranking Syrian Arab Army commander who was very recently wounded during a major and still ongoing battle in Damascus city’s eastern districts has promptly returned to the front despite objections from medical staff who treated him.

On Friday, jihadist militias affiliated with Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood attacked Syrian Arab Army forces in the district of Harasta with the aim of capturing a key military vehicle depot base.

Wounded by gunfire in recent days of the ongoing battle was one Major Hassan al-Kurdi (above), the director of the vehicle depot.

Although surviving his wounds, Major al-Kurdi was in no position to keep fighting at the time and was transported from the base to a local hospital in Damascus – a dangerous journey in its own right considering the base is partly besieged by jihadist militias.

However, according to the latest reports Major al-Kurdi, against the opinions and wishes of the medical staff, has considered himself fit for battle again and has returned to the front-lines in east Damascus to see the battle through.

It is unknown whether the Syrian commander has made the dangerous journey back to the partially besieged base to continue the battle there or if he is fighting with the relief forces making their way to the installation.
