Russian Air Force Wipes out High-Ranking Chechen ISIS Warlord in Eastern Homs

On Friday evening, ISIS had lost one of its top military commanders in Syria due to a pinpoint Russian airstrike in eastern Homs.

Abu Ayoub Al-Shishani, not to be confused with the late Abu Omar Al-Shishani, was killed by a Russian Sukhoi Su-34 bomber jet during the ISIS large-scale withdrawal from central Homs on Thursday.

Abu Ayoub Al-Shishani, a man of Chechen origin who also fought the Russian Army back home, drew up the military plans for the first ISIS assault on Palmyra back in March 2016 which led to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) retreating from the ancient city at the time.
