The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) assassinated a prominent field commander of Jaysh al-Izza in the opposition-held part of the northern Hama countryside on February 22.

Pro-government sources said that a special forces unit had targeted a vehicle that was carrying the commander, Hisham Abd al-Karim Mustafa, and other fighters of the group with an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) near the town of al-Lataminah.

Jaysh al-Izza acknowledged that Mustafa had been killed in northern Hama along with a fighter named Mohamad Munir Mahmoud. Three other fighters were reportedly in juried in the attack.

Earlier, the SAA launched a barrage of rockets at Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) positions in the town of Saraqib near the center of Idlib province. The attack destroyed several headquarters and positions of the radical group.

Jaysh al-Izza and HTS are close allies. The two groups are responsible for the majority of daily ceasefire violations in the demilitarized zone.

      You believe Syria won’t activate those s300s? If that’s the case along with Syria’s s300s then air attacks on both sides will be a stalemate.

    • Bob

      Your logic is retarded – TAF have stayed out of Syrian airspace for years now – and will not enter without Russian approval. You may recall the TAF have large outstanding debt to Russians – after TAF F-16 ambushed RuAF Sukhoi close to border resulting in pilot death. These things are not forgotten.
