Terror group leader killed near Damascus

Syrian security forces killed the leader of a terror group in the early hours of this morning.

The clash happened outside Damascus, in Kafer Battna. Two other members of the group were also killed in the attack, which lasted more than half an hour.

Weapons were found in the flat which the group hired, along with inflamatory documents.

Officials say the group was planning terror attacks in Damascus, but it's not clear whether they were from Jund Ash-Sham, which has plagued Syria for the last year, condemning Syria's secular state.

why are u repeating the lies of the syrian regime?
