BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 P.M.) – Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad made a bold move this past weekend as he replaced long-time intelligence chief Jamil Al-Hassan.

According to a source in Damascus, Al-Hassan has been replaced by General Ghassan Ismael of Tartous.

In addition to sacking Al-Hassan, the Syrian President has also ordered the military intelligence forces to replace the Air Force Intelligence forces in rural Damascus. They will be tasked with removing the AFI checkpoints and relieving their forces in the West Ghouta and East Ghouta.

The source in Damascus added that this move likely comes at the request of Saudi Arabia, who is working to build an alliance in Syria with Russia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Good move by Dr. Assad to bring some fresh perspective into Syrian intelligence services. The whole military needs to be restructured into leaner and more effective units after the terror war against hedchoppers is over and then focus on Zionist evil and liberation of occupied Golan.

Good move on Assad’s part and I don’t think it has anything to do with Saudi requests either, this has been on the cards for quite a while now and is something many Syrians have been calling for. He’s been accused of committing many war crimes against members of Syrian opposition groups, and has admitted to some himself, so he’s not the sort of person Syria needs in charge of MI going into the future, not if the reconciliation process is to be given the best chance of success. Hard times need hard men, but this guy even if he… Read more »

It’s becoming interesting.
Erdogan is seen as an as big problem as Iran by the Gulf monarchies… An an liability for EU, NATO, Libya, Egypt, Israel…
Assad is obviously getting that Iran has became a millstone for Syria since the relation prevents the unlocking of the situation.
