US strike in Syria "decapitated" al Qaeda's facilitation network

Al Qaeda leader Abu Ghadiya was killed in yesterday's strike inside Syria, a senior US military intelligence official told The Long War Journal. But US special operations forces also inflicted a major blow to al Qaeda's foreign fighter network based in Syria. The entire senior leadership of Ghadiya's network was also killed in the raid, the official stated.

Ghadiya was the leader of al Qaeda extensive network that funnels foreign fighters, weapons, and cash from Syria into Iraq along the entire length of the Syrian border. Ghadiya was first identified as the target of the raid inside Syria late last night here at The Long War Journal. The Associated Press reported Ghadiya was killed in the raid earlier today.

Several US helicopters entered the town of town of Sukkariya near Abu Kamal in eastern Syria, just five miles from the Iraqi border. US commandos from the hunter-killer teams

  • That's some fucking construction workers who were shot by the Americans. I guess the jihadist heroes, being Islamist faggot pedophile pussies they are, never fought back. At the sight of American helicopter troops they ran in terror and got shot in the backs. I suppose if they had the courage to pick up their weapons and fight back like men, they would have never been mistaken for "construction workers" but fighters.

    This article deals a stunning blow to Islamoliars at Liveleak.

  • These pr1cks has the gall to cry terrorist act, when they've just been caught red handed, aiding and organizing an insurgency in Iraq that's cost so many lives.
    Iran is and has been doing it the whole time as well, and Iran is where Muckfuker al-sader goes when things get too hot.
    Fuk Syria, I hope the US bombs the sh1t out of the Presidential palace like they did to Gaddaffi.
    Now Mommar plays real nice.

  • LOL and the state run Syrian media said they were all civilians. hehe yeah right.

    Like Americans are going to do a daring daylight raid in Syria just to cap some construction workers. If you can believe that, I have a bridge for sale for ya.

    This is a nice victory for the U.S. military. Syria will cry about it but they won't do shit. They are already helping the insurgents in Iraq, so it's not like we have to worry about their support too much.

  • We are trembling in anticipation of how angry Islamoliars from Liveleak will respond. They are now frantically looking through their video collections. They will soon post a sniper attack from Iraq from 2005. They are about to post it as "new attack". Oh my god, I'm so fucking scared, Allah have mercy.
