BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:45 P.M.) – A former rebel commander in the US-backed Southern Front Brigades has been revealed to be Syrian Arab Army (SAA) spy after he returned to government lines.
The former rebel commander was identified as Yousef Awad; he was active in the Daraa province over the last six years.
According to reports, Yousef Awad was the former military commander of the Seif Al-Sham Brigades.
Awad reportedly worked for the Syrian military intelligence until the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their allies agreed to surrender their territories in southern Syria.
Another rebel commander known by his nom de guerre “Abu Suleiman” is photographed with Awad in Damascus.
