NOTE: The picture shown below has been disproved as an old picture of Abdel Nasser Shmeir (from April 2016). Updated report with more details available here.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:55 A.M.) – Reports have just begun to surface that the Syrian Army has captured commander Abdel Nasser Shmeir, the leader of Free Syrian Army affiliate militia Faylaq al-Rahman, somewhere in Damascus’ East Ghouta region.

An unverified picture (show below) has been released over pro-government social media pages suggesting that the top Free Syrian Army has been been taken into the custody of government forces.

Indeed the bloodied up man in the unverified picture looks shocking similar in both general appearance and character expression to verified pictures of Abdel Nasser Shmeir.

In any case, virtually no information exists as to how or where Abdel Nasser Shmeir was captured and overall nothing can be confirmed at the present time.

Al-Masdar News will provide updates as more information becomes available.

If true, I hope he’s been captured in a combat and SAA has not forgotten its reconciliation deals and promises even with the leaders of so called Islamists.

Espero que sea cierto, sería una excelente noticia, una estrategia efectiva es eliminar las cabezas para que luego sus militantes no funcionen.

the picture looks photoshopped, yet the man is the purported islamist leader, and his face is beaten up.

idk what that means, but probably nothing good for the raghead boss in any case.
