Shortly after Russia announced that Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) leader Abu Mohammad al-Julani was critically injured in an airstrike, the terrorist group rejected the claim about the injury. “His health condition is good,” a statement from the group read.

“Al-Julani is fully carrying out all the commands that are given to him,” the statement continued. “May Allah help him with his task.” As reported by JOL yesterday, the Russian Defense Ministry claimed that al-Julani and 12 other senior HTS members were injured in the airstrike.

According to Russia’s defense minister, al-Julani, who was the leader of Jabhat al-Nusra before it merged with several other terror groups to form HTS, was the target of the operation. “As a result of the strike, al-Julani took several hits from ricochets, lost an arm and is now in critical condition," said Igor Yevgenyevich Konashenkov, a spokesman for the ministry.
