Five jihadist field commanders in Syria’s Idlib province who were behind a failed operation to kill Russian military police on September 18 have been exterminated along with another 32 terrorists, Russian Defense Ministry Official Spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Wednesday.
“After the terrorist attack on September 18 against the Russian military police in the Hama province the entire multilevel intelligence system of the Russian Defense Ministry in Syria was used to search for and destroy commanders of the attacking militants,” Konashenkov said.
The five field commanders were identified as Abu Sulman al-Saudi (chief of southern sector in Idlib province), Abu al-Abbas Anadin (emir on financial issues), Abu Hasan (adviser to military minister Abu Muhammad al-Djulani), Walid al-Mustafa (aide to spiritual leader Abdallah al-Muheisni) and also Abu Mudjagid (sharia judge), Konashenkov said.
A surgical strike was delivered after intelligence reports from sources were received.
In addition to the dead terrorists, an ammunition and explosives depot, as well as six trucks with large-caliber armaments were destroyed.
