Syrian Army Kills Ringleader of Terrorist Group in Daraa

The Syrian army destroyed gathering centers of the militant groups in different parts of Daraa in the Southern parts of Syria, and killed tens of terrorists, including a notorious ringleader of Al-Motassem Battalion.

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) -  The army units killed Mohamed Saleh Al-Avid, ringleader of Al-Motassem Battalion, and one of his snipers, namely Mazid Bastam al-Masri who bore Egyptian nationality, during the attacks on the concentration centers of the battalion in Atman town in Daraa.

The Syrian army also thwarted a militant attack on the army’s base in Daraa al-Balad town, killing all the invading terrorists.

A few days ago, the Syrian army restored security to the international Damascus-Daraa highway by pushing back the militants from surrounding areas.

The militants stationed in Al-Qadam town in Damascus countryside attacked the Damascus-Daraa highway again, but they faced counterattacks by the Syrian army.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed terrorists and militants against the Syrian army and civilians across the country.

Thousands of people have been killed since terrorist and armed groups turned protest rallies into armed clashes.

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.

In October 2011, calm was almost restored in most parts of the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies brought the country into chaos through every possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of increasing unrests in Syria.

The US daily, Washington Post, reported in May, 2012 that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups battling Assad's government have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.

The newspaper, quoting opposition activists and US and foreign officials, reported that Obama administration officials emphasized the administration has expanded contacts with opposition military forces to provide the Persian Gulf nations with assessments of rebel credibility and command-and-control infrastructure.

According to the report, material was being stockpiled in Damascus, in Idlib near the Turkish border and in Zabadani on the Lebanese border.

Opposition activists who several months ago said the rebels were running out of ammunition said in May that the flow of weapons - most bought on the black market in neighboring countries or from elements of the Syrian military in the past - has significantly increased after a decision by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Persian Gulf states to provide millions of dollars in funding each month.
