Earlier this week, the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen launched a massive assault on the imperative village of Bashkoy in the Aleppo Governorate’s northern countryside.

Initially, the offensive started out as a success for the Islamist rebel forces; however, Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies were caught by surprise when reinforcements from Hezbollah and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) came to Bashkoy in order to push them back towards the large village of Rityan.

The brief Islamist offensive in Bashkoy and Deir Al-Zeitoun proved to be one huge mistake for Jabhat Al-Nusra, as they ended up losing several combatants, armored vehicles, weapons, and drones to the Syrian Armed Forces inside these aforementioned villages in northern Aleppo.

To make matters worse for the Islamist rebels, the top Jabhat Al-Nusra field commander in northern Aleppo, “Abu Muthana Al-Midani” was reportedly killed by the Syrian Arab Army during a firefight at the western axis of Bashkoy.

Abu Muthana Al-Midani was a Saudi –born citizen that had a long track record of jihading in Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq – he was never arrested by the Saudi authorities, despite his prominent role inside of the Al-Qaeda organization.

Wonderful news the Al Qaeda commander maggot was exterminated. May every one of them who does not immediately desist in their terrorism be likewise exterminated.
