Former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive rifler Issa “ISSAA” Murad is making the transition to Valorant with YaLLa Esports.

The 25-year-old Jordanian competed in CS:GO with Eternal Fire (2021), OG (2019-21) and HellRaisers (2017-19).

“The beast from the Middle East is back home,” YaLLa posted Saturday on Twitter.

ISSAA will join YaLLa for Valorant Regional League (VRL) 2022 MENA: Resilience Stage 2, which begins on Tuesday.

“After all this years playing, CS:GO will be always in my heart – its the game made me who i’m today, as well as all the support I’ve gotten from you guys. I love you alot really,” ISSAA wrote on Twitter. “I know some of you will be sad and wanted me to stay, im really sorry and i hope you will keep supporting me as u always did.”
