November 22

As we announced before, we are a group of active and ex Syrian military running this page. Soldiers, and officers, there are admins of this page on the battlefield.

Today, we come with a story from our team member, a 1st Lt in the 11th Armored Division.

The story is about a Colonel of the 11th Armored; will not disclose his identity, yet we can abbreviate his name into Colonel N.W

Colonel N.W is the officer responsible of delivering rations specifically to the troops on the front lines, it is one of the the most dangerous jobs, because his job requires him in certain locations to infiltrate enemy territories and deliver rations to troops in direct contact with enemy, and others even behind enemy lines.

As he was conducting a delivery mission one night, he was stopped by an ISIS member who jumped from behind a sand shelter ~20 meters on the other end of a Syrian Army shelter.

The terrorist asked Colonel N.W “Are you a friend or an infidel?” Colonel N.W instantly engaged the terrorist in a hand-to-hand combat, and choked him to death.

He managed to complete his delivery and came back to the 11th armored HQ with a slight leg injury.
