BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 A.M.) – A top official for the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) was reportedly killed on Friday after an airstrike struck his base at the oil rich town of Al-Sukhanah near Palmyra.

The Islamic State official was identified as “Umar As’ad,” one of the terrorist group’s top commanders operating in the eastern Homs countryside.

According to a military source in Damascus, the airstrike that killed this Islamic State commander was likely conducted by the Russian Air Force, despite no official confirmation.

The Russian Air Force has been carrying out airstrikes for a number of days over the Palmyra countryside, aiding the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies as they attempt to recover the oil fields they lost.

Oh well the dream of all wahabi cockoraches, to end up with more holes than a pasta colander or fried crispy like a bacon rasher, or spreaded like mist over a large area after being detonated inside one of their armoured suicide sardine cans feww hundered meters before reaching their target.

One less to go. He’s looking like shawarma now.
Well, if the master cockroach is still active as he’s hiding like Osama, if someone knows how to find him, it’s the moment to move his a*s : the reward for him has been rised!

With his red nose I thought he looked like a very heavy drinker 🙂

Better be an alcoholic than doing jihad : you’ll last much longer and are less likely to kill someone but yourself -and it’ll take 30 or 40 years-!
