BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – Another mysterious attack was carried out against a group of rebels that were based in the western countryside of the Idlib Governorate this morning.

According to pro-opposition claims, two members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) were badly wounded after unknown assailants threw grenades at their positions inside the town of ‘Ayn Al-Hamra in the Jisr Al-Shughour countryside.

No further details were released.

These mysterious attacks have increased as of late, with groups like Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham suffering heavy casualties as a result.

It might be them just killing each other, or even possibly Assad’s people covertly helping to escalate tensions between them. But what would be best, is if it was actually the local residents, who’ve gotten sick and tired of all the bloodshed, finally starting to take matters into their own hands.

I must admit that I will go for the locals saying enough is enough. Wasn’t there a few reports stating that civilian groups were popping up everywhere a few weeks / months ago ?.

To be honest though, I will not lose any sleep, whoever is doing it.

Nusra says it’s Syrian govt undercover agents. Thus, notice that there were some undercover forces that were taking out roaches leaders in Libya. It stopped in Libya, began in Syria, then stopped then resumed in Libya and once some heads rolled, stopped again and soon resumed in Syria… Same hit team??????? Locals that are never seen or spotted, nobody knows who is doing this, perfect knowledge of where and when to strike, lightning fast actions, no failure, no witnesses and all across the province? Sorry, it’s not amateur job. Not even spy job : spies only gather intelligence, this is… Read more »

Yes the fact the HTS has just accused Russia which also operates in Libya adds credence to your comment. I was unaware of the assassinations in Libya until you mentioned it, and now because of it, I suspect HTS is 100% accurate in it’s accusations. Same hit team? yes I think you’re right, the fact both Libya and Syria, where the Russians are operating, have had the same thing happening would add credence to HTS’s accusation and your hypothesis. What worries me now that they’ve been caught is this, will this revelation of Russia’s involvement, if proven to be correct… Read more »

Could also be the Turks. In the long run, those terrorists have to go somewhere, and nobody wants them, so they have to be killed anyway.

Or any nation Qaeda fücked with but… Let’s be clear : we’ll probably never know, or not before 50-75 years : these are clearly black-ops done by pros, same pattern as in Libya. Could even be Mossad! We were probably implied in some stuff like this in Libya as 3 DGSE operatives died in a chopper crash, they wore civilian clothes and had weapons, some silencers and com devices, but you’ll never know what they were exactly doing and you actually don’t want to know about… Neverteless, there are good Samaritans obviously cleansing a mess and they don’t seem to… Read more »

There is no mystery. It’s the money. Killing others for money is what they do for a living. When killing the warlord of the region, the followers will not become ronins. They follow the new king. This is how the can grow: through acquisition; much cheaper and much faster and much more efficient than war. No loss of infrastructure, no loss of equipment and no loss of life (except the assassinated leaders)
