Legendary Defender of Deir Ezzor Issam Zahreddine Steps Down

Legendary defender of Deir Ezzor, General Issam Zahreddine was martyred on 18 October.  He was born in Tarba, al Sweida governate, in 1961.  This intrepid and formidable hero spent the last five years defending 120,000 Syrians from ISIS, al Nusra, and variously named terrorist savages funded by the West and its Gulfies underling savages in Deir Ezzor.  The  Martyr-General was killed by a landmine (another gift from NATO to the moderate terrorists?) while scouting for the tunnel in which terrorists were hiding.

Patriot martyr Issam Zahreddine was known for leading his troops in battle against the world’s human garbage dumped into the Syrian Arab Republic; unlike US generals, he did not sit in television studios being interviewed about what his soldiers were doing.  Issam Zahreddine was at the frontline commanding his troops; unlike US Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta, Syrian soldiers held the utmost respect for his leadership, and were never disarmed (Panetta had US troops in Afghanistan disarmed before addressing them, in March 2012).

The fearless Issam Zahreddine was also known for leading his troops while wounded, including with his arm in a sling.  Previous attempts had been made on his life, he had a very dangerous injury from a bullet that missed his heart with 1 centimeter only but left a remarkable big medal scar.  He was in the forefront of the battle against ISIS in al Thardah mountain — near Deir Ezzor airport — when 83 Syrian soldiers were ‘accidentally’ slaughtered by the Obama regime coalition, in September 2016.

NATO deep state and Gulfies tyrants’ media have ignored the martyrdom of  this great Syrian warrior — except to use his death in more criminal anti-Syria war propaganda.  They ignore the fact that the entire country of Syria is in mourning over its great defender; tens of thousands of Syrians attended his funeral services.

May the courage and the blood of Martyr General Issam Zahreddine help the Syrian people in their final victory against the terrorism they continue to fight on behalf of humanity.

At the time writing this post we learned of the sad but also proud news that Martyr General Issam Zahreddine’s successor Brigadier Wa’il Zayzafoun has also martyred in the same Huweijat Sakarisland in the Euphrates River, Deir Ezzor. 

Syrian Arab Army commanders have always been leading their troops at the frontline battling the world’s filthiest filth sent to Syria from all sides of the world by NATO and stooges. This is confirmed by the large number of them martyred during combat. Each time an SAA officer ascends as a martyr, this incredible army gets stronger and the troops’ determination to eliminate terror and invaders on their land gets more profound.
