Syria: News update Friday 13-05-16

Wasn't a good week for senior Hezb-allah commander Mustafa Amine Badreddine who was blown up in a large explosion near Damascus airport. Yes the terrorist thug who was indited by the UN for the assassination of former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri in Beirut in 2005. Received a dose of his own medicine which saw him him descend to hell in which to meet his maker.

Just weeks after they lost the ancient city of Palmyra to a Syria offensive, ISIS have made the regime position there less secure with the cutting of the main Government supply line between the city of Homs and Palmya by advancing and gaining ground around Tiyas airbase

Syrian government forces have blocked  a first aid convoy to the besieged rebel-held Damascus suburb of Darayya.

Sixteen senior members of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front terrorist group were killed when an air strike hit a meeting in Idlib province in north-western Syria.

In Hama province in central Syria, al-Nusra Front militants shot dead 19 civilians from the Alawite sect of President Assad, SOHR said. The Alawites are viewed as heretics by jihadist groups.

Amnesty International is reporting that terrorist groups including Ahrar al-Sham and the Army of Islam may have used chemical weapons in attacks on a mainly Kurdish neighbourhood of Aleppo
