No doubt the Syrian arena has turned to a field for armed men, particularly “al-Qaeda” and extremists, from all over the globe.
This time, the KavkazCenter website revealed Wednesday that “the son of a late Chechen field commander who waged two post-Soviet wars against Russian forces has been killed while fighting with the rebels in Syria.”
The so-called Russian Islamist website, linked to “al-Qaeda” announced that “Rustam Gelayev, son of former warlord Ruslan Gelayev, entered into a battle with superior forces of the regime in a Syrian district, presumably between August 11 and August 13.”
“During the fighting, he was martyred,” claimed the website, which is regularly used by Russian-based extremist militants to exchange information and has developed a history of providing accurate battlefield reports.
The elder Gelayev was one of the top commanders in Chechnya’s first war that killed tens of thousands between 1994 and 1996.
KavkazCenter said the younger Gelayev was born in 1988 and had lived for a most of his life in Russia before receiving an extremist education in an unnamed Middle East country. Continue reading
