Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade chief Abu Ali al-Baridi

‘Severe blow’: Al Qaeda suicide bomber takes out leadership of key ISIS brigade

HAIFA, Israel – A recent suicide bombing in southern Syria shows the rivalry between Al Qaeda and ISIS is more than just a contest to see who can kill the most infidels — the groups are using classic terror techniques on each other.

The Nov. 15 bombing came at a top-level meeting of the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade, a key ISIS militia known for its bloody and vicious hold over parts of the Golan Heights. Six of the group’s top men were killed, including Muhammad “Abu Ali” al-Baridi, the shadowy head of the group who went by the nickname “The Uncle.”

Al Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, quickly took credit, gloating on Twitter about the “heroic” attack.

    For the last four years, Israel has been like a cat taking a nap, ready to spring into action if disturbed. Let’s hope these enemies knock each other out.

      I am not losing any sleep over the fact that these two sides are murdering each other. It is like two rabid, foaming dogs going at it.

      • I like dogs. It’s not their fault if they catch rabies 🙁

          Point well taken. Save the dogs; kill the Islamic fanatics.
