BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 P.M.) – A mayor of a town in the western countryside of the Daraa Governorate has been assassinated this evening, a source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar News.

According to the military, the mayor of Jillen was assassinated after a group of unknown assailants opened fire on him in the town.

The military added that they suspect the assassination was carried out by a Free Syrian Army (FSA) sleeper cell.

A few weeks ago, a Free Syrian Army sleeper cell carried out an assault inside the Jillen; these attacks have become prevalent since the start of 2019.

It’s -unfortunately- clear that some of the “reconciliated” ones are not so reconciliated

Earlier an Ex Commander of one of the Militant FSA faction who had reconciled and surrendered was assassinated and now the Mayor of Daraa is assassinated. This is being done by FSA group members within Darra whose counterparts in Hama & Idlib are getting their asses burnt so no wonder who is asking this to be carried out. I wont be surprised if they turn up the heat next in Damascus too. Syrian Intelligence should put an extra effort to identify who these sympathizers of FSA or Daesh are and eliminate them for the good of Syria.

I agree. Just when SAA gets few of the 14 governates under control some one focks around somewhere it is Daesh in Dier Ezzor, FSA in Daraa and Daesh in Palmyra it is Jaish Izaa in Hama or HTS in Idlib and the stinking Turks in Afrin & Mayadin. Syria has become like a street dog full of ticks 😉 when it gets bitten the ticks move from one area to another. No wonder the Russians have come with a hair removing cream 🙂
