ISIS leader killed in special operation in south Syria
Syria's fight against occupation, incursions, oil theft, and terrorism continues.
SANA reported on Monday that the Syrian Special Mission Forces carried out a special operation in the city of Tafas in the Daraa countryside, during which a high-ranking leader of the ISIS terrorist organization was eliminated.
“The security forces carried out a special operation in Tafas city in Dara northwestern countryside, during which the terrorist Mahmoud Ahmad al-Hallaq, nicknamed as Abu Omar Al-Jababi, one of the most dangerous terrorists in the southern region, was eliminated”, a security source told SANA.
The source pointed out that the terrorist Al-Jababi was the former leader of ISIS in Yarmouk Basin and was responsible for the training of new recruits, adding that he was working with the recently killed terrorist Abu Salem Al-Iraqi and the terrorist Abdul Rahman Al-Iraqi, in coordination with the intelligence services of an Arab country.
This is the second ISIS leader to be eliminated by the Special Mission Forces this month. Last Wednesday, Special Forces carried out an operation in which the terrorist leader of ISIS in the south, Abu Salem Al-Iraqi, was killed. Al-Iraqi was killed after he blew himself up with an explosive belt when he was surrounded by the Special Forces.
