Syria, the Islamic State in the East loses another prominent leader

The Islamic State in the East loses another prominent leader. He was, together with “Rasheed”, among the planners of the thwarted attack on the Gwayran prison to free the former ISIS jihadists

The Islamic State in eastern Syria loses another of its top commanders. The jihadist was killed in a raid by the SDF and Inherent Resolve in Hawaij during a shooting following his refusal to surrender. The man, whose personal details have not yet been disclosed, was among the planners of the thwarted maxi attack on the Gwayran (Hasaka) camp, which was supposed to take place in November 2021 and whose goal was to free the former ISIS prisoners and their families. The terrorist operation was stopped thanks to a series of targeted raids that led to the capture of all members of the operational cell and its commander: Mohammed Abid al-Awad, alias “Rasheed”, one of the most important IS emirs in Syria. The leader, after being arrested, began to confess and probably the latest SDF-Coalition operation is due to his information.
