Hay’at Tahir al-Sham Claims It Captured Cells Of Syrian And Russian Iintelligence

On May 10, Hussain al-Shami, a security commander of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), told the HTS-linked news network Iba’a that HTS had captured three intelligence cells of the Syrian Military Intelligence and the Russian intelligence after tracking them for months.

Al-Shami said that three cells, led by women, carried out several IED attacks against the militants in Idlib governorate. The HTS commander added that the cells had been planning to assassinate and abduct several prominent military and civilian figures in the governorate. According to al-Shami, the Syrian and Russian intelligence allegedly used these well-organized cells to provoke conflicts among armed groups in Idlib governorate.

A wave of assassinations hit Idlib governorate in the period between April 26 and 30. Later on May 3 a second wave began and it is still ongoing. According to Iba’a, an IED hit a vehicle of Jaysh al-Ahrar in southern Idlib injuring several fighters on May 10.

More than 30 militants and civilians have been killed in these assassinations since late April, according to Syrian opposition sources. Local observers believe that HTS attempts to counter such cells are doomed to fail because the group’s security forces are limited in their efforts because of constant inter-militant tensions.

    “HAY’AT TAHIR AL-SHAM CLAIMS IT CAPTURED CELLS OF SYRIAN AND RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE”

    Probably and they did that through their friends from CIA

  • HighLord Gaz

    HTS bastards lying thru their crooked teeth in a vain attempt to bolster their halfwit supporters confidence… stupid takfiri scum..

  • Smaug

    Of course the Rebels blame Russia and Assad for the hits, it’s easier to deal with the internal fallout from that than to consider that a ally might have behind the killing. This sort of thing was common in Palestine conflicts where Fatah members settled internal scores under the pretext of ‘executing collaborators.’ Think of that recent hit on those SAA officers in southern Syria where no one took credit for the attack; was it the Rebels, the Israelis, or was it an internal mafia hit?

    Headline should more correctly been:
    MI6 Assets Claims It Captured Cells Of Syrian And Russian Intelligence

    Al-Qaida in Syria don’t have their own counter intelligence with that capacity. They get help from several foreign intelligences.

    Led by women!?!? Takfiris, you are done, even the women are after you!

  • goingbrokes

    Takfiri gangs execute some women and claim they were Russians or Syrian government spies – great, what next.

  • Xanatos

    These terrorists in white hats steal from the locals, rape their women, terrorize them to obey bizarre laws from Saudi religious police, and they loot and pulverize artifacts and archaeological sites.

    Of course The locals hate them. Life under these white helmets is a nightmare. Finding three cells of informants isn’t even the tip of the iceberg. There are scores of cells operating in idlib.

    sounds like HTS is rounding up randoms because their leaders are blowing up left and right. Nice work SAA.
