Vicious Daraa Attack Leaves Three Syrian Intelligence Officers Dead

Illustrative image

Early on April 9, three officers of the Syrian Political Security Directorate were killed in a vicious attack in the northern Daraa countryside.

Unidentified gunmen ambushed then killed three officers on a road leading to the town of Ghabagheb. The town is located near the administrative border between Daraa and Damascus Countryside.

The slain officers were identified as Osama al-Khalid, Rami Jamous and Ali Barakat. All three victims were originally from Homs countryside.

A Syrian source with knowledge on the matter told SouthFront that the three officers were on a “special mission”. The source didn’t provide any further details.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, so far. ISIS, whose cells are known to be active in northern Daraa, remains the main suspect.

Ghabagheb ambush was the most recent in a series of attacks on government service members and local fighters in Daraa and other parts of the southern region. Government forces are now coordinating with former rebels to restore security and order in the region.

ISIS cells? The Rothschild neocolony in Palestine is invading the Golan Heights a couple kilometers from that area of Syria, and the terrorist Ziojews have an enviable intelligence apparatus built with all the money/tech transfers from US/EU Ziocorporate terrorists. There’s also the nearby al-Tanf area of ISIS/US interest.

Wonder how ISIS is always so up to date on Syrian Army movements in these parts of south Syria.

Your depravity knows no bounds but that is the stamp of Lucifer upon you.


They are my enemies, I have no problem with that.


And what you get for trying to create chaos in the Middle East, is 10k PLA boots on iranian soil. Good luck with that, boy!


Be it 10K or 100K, once they face the true might of our army they will get blown into tiny pieces. We don’t play around, for now they need to say thanks a traitor sits at the PM office.


Bibi is not a traitor!

and again and again and again and again…putins reconciliation program works out just fine-sarcasm out.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

It’s usually Air Force Intelligence or 4th division personnel that are in the firing line, but not this time, this time it’s the PSD taking casualties, so I can’t be sure the normal suspects are the perpetrators of this attack.
Usually it’s ex FSA rebels with anti Iranian sentiments who commit the assassinations but this time it could anyone, the PSD has a lot of enemies from a wide variety of different groups, so pick a culprit, any culprit.
But sadly these aren’t the only attacks in the south, here are a few more incidents that SF didn’t mention.

8th march,
“The assassination of a non-commissioned officer with the rank of assistant and a member of the Air Force Intelligence branch of the Assad government by unknown persons, followed by a campaign of arrests of dozens of rioters in the city of Dael, north of Daraa”.

9th march,
“Rural Quneitra: Al-Bakr checkpoint was targeted by unknown persons, and all the checkpoint personnel were killed”.

“South Syria: 2 brothers were assassinated today in Sheikh Miskin (N. Daraa). One of them was a former member of the Executive Office for Daraa Governorate (pic). A reconcilied Rebel was also killed by gunmen in Shejarah”.

And the 3 PSD officers on top of that, so it’s not a rosy situation in the south.
And last week I told you about the Hezbollah fighters and their families that have been forced to move out of central Darra due to central Committee demands, well this week the rebels burned down a few of those Hezbollah homes that were vacated, which goes to show just how hated Hezbollah has become in Darra.


Glory to Qasem Soleimani! Glory to these three!
