Four Soldiers, Intelligence Officers Killed Or Injured In New Wave Of Attacks In Daraa

Illustrative image

On April 22, four Syrian soldiers and intelligence officers were killed or wounded in two new separate attacks in the southern governorate of Daraa.

In the first attack, unidentified gunmen opened fire at two soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army 4th Division while they were passing on a road between the towns of Tell Shihab and Muzayrib in western Daraa. One of the soldiers died on the sport, while the other was wounded. Both victims are natives of Daraa.

The second attack saw unidentified gunmen targeting two officers from the Syrian Air Force Intelligence Directorate west of the town of Dael in northern Daraa. One of the two officers, Lt. Mustafa Abul Hakim from Homs, was killed. The other officer sustained wounds only.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks yet. Such attacks are usually carried out by radical militants or ISIS cells, which are known to be active in northern and western Daraa.

The attacks on government service members and even former rebels in Daraa increased this month. Civilians were not spared. On April 22, gunmen gunned down Ahmad Hasish, a former rescue worker, in Tell Shihab.

    Not a good week for Saa,Sdf is literally steamrolling them at qamıshlı at the moment by capturing strongholds,vehicles,killing more than 15 soldiers.Even famous ”Tay” quarter gone.

    1. Jens Holm says:

      SAA has no capasity to be there.

      1. Gaijin says:

        East of Syria belongs to Sdf, Saa has to embrace this reality.

    2. Phantom says:

      They are not the SAA mind you, they are local arab tribe that supports the SAA

      1. Gaijin says:

        True, regime-affiliated National Defense Forces.

        1. Jens Holm says:

          “home guard”

        2. Not a fan of Israel says:

          Make up ya mind. You make a statement then agree with someone who shreds your comment.

          1. Gaijin says:

            ı wrote Saa because of habit ,at the end of the day Saa and National defense forces are Assad’s forces,not a big deal.

          2. Not a fan of Israel says:

            You stated or implied the Syrian Army got trashed whereas it was some tribal group….and NOT Assad’s army at all.

      2. Jens Holm says:

        I think we all know the many mixings. hye are lkonglematat with no glue.
        Nothing in the structures even try to make any unifications. That why Assads must go. With all help, they are worse then no good.

        1. Not a fan of Israel says:

          Assad isn’t going anywhere.

  2. Jens Holm says:

    None like SAA and thir strange kind of mix up with Hesbollah and Iranians.

    Writing it most likely are militants or ISIS is no explanation. They just dont wantr Assad there. And we do know the picture. They make forced recuitsment among the ones among the locals, which wont fight against any. They arrest random people, which hardly ever will be found again. Homecomming Syrians are arrested or worse, because its a crime to leave and dont join and support Assads.

    1. Not a fan of Israel says:

      Israeli covert gun team. Next.

      1. Jens Holm says:

        What a strange remark. Israel and ISIS not even has same targets as well.

        Most incidents by that easy can be split up in a who is who – not all.

        Try again. Nobels still dont have a price for lying.

  3. johnny rotten says:

    If the source is Qalaat to the Mudiq on Twitter, almost certainly it’s a fake.

    1. Jens Holm says:

      You not even check the source up. Thats how to be an illiterate ignorant.

  4. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

    Isis always claims responsibility for their attacks, if they don’t claim responsibility it means someone else is responsible.

    20 April,
    “ISIS has claimed responsibility for shooting and killing 2 Syrian soldiers in the village of Ghadir al-Bustan in Syria’s Quneitra Province, near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights”.

    So it definitely wasn’t Isis responsible for these latest attacks on the pro Iranian SAA soldiers and agents.

    When the Russian backed 5th army Corps was responsible for Darra and Quneitra, there were quite a few anti Iranian protests and the occasional anti Government protest, but very few assassinations.
    But now the 5th army Corps has been sent to Deir ez Zor to fight against Isis in Iranian administered territory, the Iranians and Hezbollah have effectively replaced the 5th Corps in Darra, and now more people die here than anywhere else in Syria.
    The Russian backed 5th army Corps should be here in Darra and Quneitra providing security and Hezbollah and Iran should be in Deir ez Zor fighting Isis, why aren’t they.
    The Iranian supported 4th division is the SAA’s most elite fighting force, and yet here they are providing security in Darra, all while Isis is running amok in Iran’s most important stronghold in Syria, something doesn’t make sense.

    1. Not a fan of Israel says:

      Israel often calls in as ISIS and claims “We did it!”

      1. Jens Holm says:

        No they dont. People like You do all the time.

        Much as mpore then half of the population in the world are Jews and Americans and You are sittibg on Your hands in peace drinking tea.

    2. Jens Holm says:

      Even well written, You seemes to forget a few things. Fx Iranians mainly has their own aganda towards Israel below Golan and their long supply line from Al Qaim – Abu Kamal.

      Next the helpers to Assads and Assads are not enough in numbers as well as miliytary and civile capsity.

      I agree about Daraa., but there is no one else.

      To me its a silent declining for Assads. I dont know what might happen next, but none there seemes to follow any good advices from any.

    3. Not a fan of Israel says:

      Except where Israel calls, pretends to be ISIS, and claims responsibility on their behalf. Happens all the time. In a sense, it is true since Israel and the Saudis run Daesh/ISIS with US help.

      Israel, “Occasionally we’re going to have to kill a few american grunts, hope ya don’t mind, America.”

  5. nyomarek says:

    War is dropping people like flies in Syria, but the Western world is deep in Covid Scam.

    1. Jens Holm says:

      The only difference is we are advanced and by that actually are able to registrate those many Covids.

      A help by You would be stop breathing and send some oxygene to India. Hard to see so many pretenders in one place.

      1. Not a fan of Israel says:

        Advanced? North African countries took Covid-19 far more seriously than Whackjob countries like Israel.
