2019-07-08 Syria-Lebanon-Iran||Syria’s Assad replaces security chiefs — reports
[IsraelTimes] Pro-government Syrian pages on social media are reporting that Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir |
Supressor of the Damascenes...
has replaced some heads of influential security agencies, including Maj. Gen. Jamil Hassan, who has headed the powerful Air Force Intelligence Directorate since 2009.
Several of the social media pages ‐ including Latakia Eagles and Homs Network Live ‐ report that Hassan was replaced by his deputy, Maj. Gen. Ghassan Ismail.
There was no immediate confirmation from the government or state media, which rarely report news related to intelligence agencies.
The pages say the General Intelligence Directorate is now headed by Maj. Gen. Hussam Louqa, while Maj. Gen. Nasser al-Ali is now in charge of the Political Security Directorate.
Bahjat Suleiman, a former intelligence chief and former ambassador to Jordan, also lists the names on his Facebook page and Twitter account.
In addition to sacking al-Hassan, the Syrian President has also ordered the military intelligence forces to replace the Air Force Intelligence forces in rural Damascus. They will be tasked with removing the AFI checkpoints and relieving their forces in the West Ghouta and East Ghouta.
The source in Damascus added that this move likely comes at the request of Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
, who is working to build an alliance in Syria with Russia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
