Support SouthFront

A militant who worked as an arm trafficker for the U.S.-led Military Operations Center (MOC) in Jordan was reportedly assassinated in the southern Syrian governorate of Daraa on March 11.

Two unknown gunmen riding a motorcycle shot and killed the trafficker, Farzat Muhammad al-Mahamid, along with his brother, Ihab Mohammed Al-Mahameed, on a road near the town of Om Elmiathin in eastern Daraa.

According to opposition sources, Farzat was a member of the Ausud al-Sunnah Brigade while his brother Ihab was not involved in any military activities.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed that Farzat’s work included trafficking weapons supplied by the MOC in Jordan to opposition factions in southern Syria. According to the London-based monitoring group, he was one of the main traffickers working for the MOC.

The MOC supported opposition factions in southern Syria with lethal weapons and logistics up until it was shut down in December of 2017.

Farzat had reportedly joined the reconciliation process and received guarantees that he will not be targeted by Syrian security forces.

Such assassinations are usually blamed on the Syrian intelligence. However, there is a chance that the trafficker was targeted by a terrorist group, like ISIS whose cells are known to be active in Daraa.

Perplexing. So many possible people who would have liked to kill him!

Mossad / Mista’arvim (because he’s no longer useful and plausible deniability)
CIA (ditto)
Turkish special forces (ditto)

MI-whatever (ditto)

Spetznaz (settling an old score)

My feeling is it’s most likely to be cleaning up shop. No loose ends to spill the beans.
