Zahran Alloush, the commander of the Army of Islam, a powerful rebel group in Syria, was killed during an airstrike near Damascus. Alloush’s death is a significant blow to the Syrian opposition, as he was a key figure in the fight against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. The Army of Islam, backed by Saudi Arabia, is one of the largest and most influential rebel groups in Syria. Alloush was known for his hardline stance against the Assad regime and ISIS. His death could potentially disrupt the peace talks scheduled in Geneva, as Alloush was set to play a crucial role.

Alloush’s death has sparked mixed reactions. While the Syrian government and its allies hail it as a victory, others fear it could lead to the fragmentation of the anti-Assad forces. This could pave the way for extremist groups like ISIS to gain more ground. The Army of Islam has vowed to continue its fight against the Assad regime, but without Alloush’s leadership, its future remains uncertain. Despite the setback, the Syrian opposition remains determined to oust Assad and restore peace in the war-torn country.
