    DAMASCUS, Syria - A Syrian sculptor is working on creating a bust in honor of General Issam Zahreddine who died last month fighting ISIS.

    Today he presented a sketch to the General's son and brother and received high praise.

    General Zahreddine became symbolic to the resistance of Deir Ezzor, which was under a three year long siege, from ISIS forces.

    He was often videoed and photographed on the front lines fighting against the terrorist group which won him the respect of the soldiers he led and an inspiration to ordinary Syrians.

    He died on October 18 on Saqr Island when his convoy hit a mine laid by ISIS and was laid to rest in his hometown in Al-Suqeida province, the stronghold of Syria's Druze minority.
