BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 A.M.) – A group of reconciled rebels carried out a new ambush against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the western countryside of the Daraa Governorate on Saturday.

According to a military source in the Daraa Governorate, the reconciled rebels that were previously part of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) opened fire on a Syrian Army bus in the town of Jillin.

The source said several Syrian Arab Army soldiers were wounded and transported to a nearby hospital.

Prior to this attack, a group of reconciled rebels attacked the nearby military intelligence base and took the officers hostage.

The reconciled rebels demanded the Syrian military intelligence release the former Free Syrian Army commander Haytham Al-Hariri from their prisons.

SAA should never trust FSA terrorists…they are just as bad as Daesh. A dead FSA terrorist isn’t such a bad thing….

Reconciled terrorists must disappear and the whole other terrorists as well.

Obviously, those rebels didn’t understand what reconciliation was about. Second time around when captured by the SAA they will be executed as traitors twice over.

One can only conclude that former rebels do no appreciate being murdered or thrown in jail after reconciliation. It smacks of betrayal and it is also beyond stupid. Assad and Command of SAA have always neglected their rear, but now they are deliberately formenting unrest and stimulating insurgency. As I said, beyond stupid.

Time for change at the helm of this rudderless schip?

One can only conclude SAA and turkish mercenaries and islamists will complete exhaust eachother while Iranian proxies are slinking away. SDF continues to expand its forces rapidly, while destroying sleeper cells. Now that US is reinforcing its military in the region its strategic position is getting even better now that they also have a bumper crop of wheat and Barley.

Will SDF rule the whole country once Assad and islamists have destroyed eachother?

Unlikely but the odds are getting better.

Considering the PYD ideology (Social Ecology) and Rojava’s constitution patterned on the Swiss one, it’d even be wishable to have something similar in power in every ME country : they crush the bälls of the crazy violent sectarianists, practise direct democracy, gender equality… And unlike commies, they’re a kind of leftists that are way more open (ecolo-anarcho)… Ah, a total nightmare for everything that has ruled the Mid-East for a century… Nothing would please me more than a domino theory effect in the region. How I’d love to see all those creeps around biting the dusts, and it’d be the… Read more »
