Another Former Rebel Commander Assassinated In Syria’s Daraa

Illustrative image

On February 25 morning, another former rebel commander was assassinated in the southern Syrian governorate of Daraa.

The commander, Khaled Sultan al-Mahamid, was shot and killed by two unidentified gunmen in the town of al-Yadudah in the western Daraa countryside. The perpetrators managed to flee the town.

Al-Mahamid was a field commander of a former Free Syrian Army group that was known as the Revolution Army. After joining the 2018 Daraa reconciliation process, al-Mahamid returned to civilian life and didn’t join any pro-government formation.

The hit on al-Mahamid was a part of an assassination campaign targeting former rebel and radicals in Daraa. The previous target was Kamal Hamid al-Jaouni, a former commander of ISIS’s Khalid ibn al-Walid Army. On February 23, al-Jaouni was shot and killed by unidentified gunmen while he was traveling on Aabdyn-Baiyt Irah road in the western countryside of Daraa.

Many Syrian opposition activists claim that the Syrian intelligence is behind the assassination campaign. However, there is no evince to back these accusations.
