DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:15 P.M.) – Airstrikes conducted by the Syrian Air Force on rebel-held areas in Syrian desert have killed two senior commanders belonging to US-backed militant groups in.
Pro-rebel accounts on social media mourned the death of Ahmed al-Jarad and Rami al-Kamari; both are field commanders in the FSA-affiliated Osoud al-Sharqiyah faction.
The US-sponsored faction is currently fighting the Syrian Army and allied forces in the great expanses of the southwestern Syrian desert.
Last week the militant group shot down a Syrian Air Force jet and captured its pilot.
