Riyadh fumes over militant leader’s killing in Syria

30 December 2015 9:57


Saudi Arabia has expressed dismay over recent killing of the notorious leader of the so-called Jaysh al-Islam (Army of Islam) terrorist group in Syria, saying his death does not help the establishment of peace in the crisis-hit country.

“Attempts to assassinate leaderships fighting Daesh do not serve the peace process and [efforts] to achieve a political solution in Syria,” Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said on Tuesday.

Syria’s General Command of the Army and Armed Forces, in a statement issued late on Christmas Day, confirmed that Zahran Alloush and several leaders of other Takfiri groups were killed in aerial attacks against terrorist hideouts in the Damascus countryside of Eastern Ghouta.
