On Thursday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command announced the recent changes made to their leadership in light of the recent terrorist attacks conducted by the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) in the Homs Governorate’s provincial capital earlier this week.

The commander of all security operations in the Homs Governorate has been delegated to Major General Jamal Suleiman of the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Regiment of the 4th Mechanized Division.

Major General Suleiman has replaced Major General Lu’ayy Mo’la as the head of the security council in the Homs Governorate after several demonstrations inside the provincial capital this week called for his dismissal from this position.

Unlike his predecessor, Major General Suleiman has a wealth of experience on the battlefield, as his elite military unit has restored stability to eastern Hama and the Al-Sha’ar Mountains of northeastern Homs.

Most recently, Major General Suleiman’s 555th Regiment led the counter-attack against ISIS in the Ithriyah countryside to reopen the Syrian Government’s only supply route to the Aleppo Governroate.

In addition to the aforementioned change, the Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command has replaced Major General Badi’ Al-‘Ali as the commander of the Republican Guard.

Major General Al-‘Ali has been replaced by Major General Talal Makhlouf.
