While clashes continue to rage through the provincial capital of Daraa, an important commander of the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) Al-‘Ashair Division was assassinated by unknown assailants in the countryside of the southern province.

Major Talal Al-Khalaf was traveling in northeastern Daraa on the road between the villages of Jadal and Shaiyaha villages when his vehicle was suddenly blown apart by a roadside bomb.

Three of his bodyguards also died in the incident. In a statement released online, the FSA group said it could not identify which faction was responsible for his untimely death.

Talal Al-Khalaf was otherwise scheduled to attend the February 23 Syria peace talks in Astana on behalf of the Syrian Opposition.

The revolution eats its children. All those into the peace talks are in danger to be assassinated by the pro war factions. Moderates are sentenced to death by the Takfir. Moderates were useful idiots and are not useful any more.
