Hayat Tahrir al-Sham’s Leader Is In Coma. Russian Airstrike Destroys Large Underground Ammunition Depot

Abu Mohammad al-Julani, military leader and official leader of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham since October 2017, has fallen into a coma following a Russian surgical strike on the terrorist group’s top commanders in Syria’s Idlib province, according to Russian Ministry of Defense as reported by TASS.

The Ministry reported on October 4 that the Russian combat jet strike in Syria left Julani with heavy fragmentation wounds and in critical condition. Julani reportedly has lost an arm.

As a result of the precision strike by a Su-34 bomber 49 militants were killed, including seven leaders in Hayat Tahrir al-Sham’s “eastern sector”.

The jet also destroyed the terrorist group’s “largest underground ammunition depot” near the town of Abu ad-Duhur, accommodating “over 1,000 tons of artillery shells and multiple launch rockets.”

The airstrike also destroyed a nearby “ammunition and explosives depot and six SUVs with large-caliber weapons,” Major General Igor Konashenkov, spokesman for the defense ministry, said.

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham’s denies the claim that Julani was wounded in the airstrike through their Twitter channels, though they are yet to show photographic evidence that Julani was unharmed.

      SyAAF has converted the L-39 “Albatross” trainers to be used as ground strike aircraft they been using them for some time now especially in Idlib.

        What does that have to do with anything? This was a russian strike with a su-34

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          It’s funny how all these bird names are being used.The pilots in those “Albatrosses” are doing incredible things in them and are brave, even the Russians admire them.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            They reported that in Kommisarant Russian publication talked to Russian pilots and they discussed their admiration for the Syrian pilots.

    What an irony !!! The day after the Saudi King Salman , one of his main benefactors , arrives for an official visit to Moscow, Ahmad Hussein al-Shar’a , the real name of Al Joulani , slips into a coma. Pity , he could have become a fine physician , had he not descended into the abyss of treachery against his homeland.

    Thank you Russia! Please do this every day! Send the terrorists and their backstabbing allies to hell!

  • Pave Way IV

    The US is silent about this because we are secretly happy about the RuAF ‘cleaning up’ our foreign operatives in Syria. Can’t let any of these weasels jump ship, make it to the west and start ratting out their CENTCOM and CIA paymasters.

    An unemployed head-chopper is a dangerous head-chopper.

    Lulz get rekt!

    Meaning HTS leader al-Julani is now the proverbial ‘one armed bandit’ – for as long as he survives.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      They say al Joulani is in a coma now, but HTS sent a message through their Telegram account that he is fine and well. Thing is if it gets out that hes dead or injured like this there will be all hell breaking loose, which we will expect that to be soon.

        Heh heh, who did you support?

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Syria is better but just bad coaching decisions by Syria ,Australia is too arrogant never like any cocksure pricks, prefer players with heart easier to cheer for those who love the game.

  • I hope he dies
