A team of Syrian army’s special forces raided a meeting of the ISIL commanders in an inside job and killed tens of the militants’ leaders.
At least 40 ISIL terrorist leaders were killed during the army’s raids on their gathering in al-Quriya district of al-Mayadeen city in Deir Ezzur province in Eastern Syria.
According to the military sources, the operation was the result of an inside job by the Syrian spies.
Earlier this month, a large number of ISIL terrorists were also killed in Syrian army’s airstrikes against ISIL leaders’ gathering centers in Raqqah province.
Syrian fighter jets had hit ISIL positions in Raqqa province and managed to kill tens of high-profile Takfiri commanders in the area.
Early tips from informants in ISIL camps disclosed that a large group of ringleaders, mainly from Saudi Arabia and Tunisia, have been killed in the raid.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
