BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 A.M.) – It has been a long journey for Ahmad Al-Shamali, as he spent the majority of the war inside the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) high command.

According to a military source in Damascus, Ahmad Al-Shamali officially completed his espionage mission on behalf of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) this month.

Shamali was one of the highest ranking commanders in Jaysh Al-Nasr, often leading this Free Syrian Army faction into battle against the Syrian Arab Army in the Hama Governorate.

However, with the Syrian Army concluding their military operations in Idlib, Shamali was given the green light to abandon Jaysh Al-Nasr and return to government lines.

In the images below, Shamali is first photographed as a member of Jaysh Al-Nasr and then pictured again with the Syrian Air Force Intelligence chief, Wafiq Nasser, after his return to government lines:

This makes the whole story questionable. A story with a spy is probably made up to boost morale.

He should write a book called “Living with the enemy” or “inside the enemy lines” or “on the wrong side History”

Call me paranoid but this information and his picture should not have been released. He should be entitled to a full military pension immediately

It’s a way to demoralize and to induce suspicion an infighting in terrorists body of organization although yes a full uninterrupted and undisturbed retirement warrants such psychologically breaking job to be done. I believe the message is “here’s why we keep ahead of your strategy”
