According to reports, Russia’s Aerospace Forces have critically wounded al-Joulani in Syria, and killed 12 field commanders of the terrorist group which controls Idlib Governorate.
“As a result of the strike, Jabhat al-Nusra leader Abu Mohammad Jouliani received multiple heavy fragmentation wounds and, having lost his hand, is in critical condition, according to several independent sources,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Wednesday.
“Along with numerous (about 50 people) security guards, 12 field commanders of Jabhat al-Nusra, including the closest aide of Jouliani, were also killed,” he added.
Moscow has been conducting an anti-terrorist operation in Syria since September 30, 2015, at its president’s request.
