Two generals and a colonel deserted from the Syrian army

Two generals and a colonel deserted from the Syrian armyTwo army generals and one colonel of the Syrian national army left their units and deserted to Turkey, the Associated Press reports, quoting the state television of this country. The names of the fugitives are not revealed yet.

The escape occurred at a time when the government army began clearing a number of settlements in northern Syria in the province of Idlib, which borders Turkey. The officers moved into the adjacent territory of the 234 group of refugees fleeing sweeps.

Almost at the same time, the head of the UN Refugee Office, Valerie Amos, toured Syrian refugee camps located in Turkey near the border. She is expected to meet later with the Turkish leadership in Ankara. Currently, around 12 thousands of refugees from Syria have found refuge in Turkey. Local authorities placed them in six temporary camps.

Junior officers and soldiers massively deserted from the Syrian government army for several months, but the flight of generals and senior officers is still a rarity. A large part of the Syrian military elite belongs to the Shiite sect of the Alawites, which includes the country's president, Bashar Assad.

Until today, only one general was known who had gone over to the rebel side. Brigadier General Mustafa Ahmad al-Sheikh fled Syria to Turkey in January of this year. In addition, 8 in March Syria was left by the Deputy Minister of Petroleum Industry, Abdo Husameddin.

The uprising in Syria has been going on for a year. During this time, clashes between opponents of the regime and security forces killed more than 7500 people, reports Lenta.ru

            Two generals and a colonel deserted from the Syrian army

            To whom?
            Burkhan Galyun, head of the opposition Syrian National Council / SNA /, has rejected a call for opposition by Kofi Annan, special envoy of the United Nations and the League of Arab States for a Syrian settlement, to enter into dialogue with the government of President Bashar Assad.

            and these are not people who say that they want peace to the people of Syria.

              Judging by the tone of the article and by what "truthful" facts it is supported by, then it was obviously pulled out of some publication that is actively engaged in brainwashing of the Western philistine. There is nothing surprising - two camps - pro-American and anti-American - are waging an ideological war every day. As for the generals and the polkan, those who are one of those who are always ready to open the gates for the passage of a camel laden with gold.

    Judging by the source - the Associated Press - is inclined to distrust the information presented. The entire Western press surprisingly describes the events as if it were a branch of the Pentagon's department of psychological warfare. Has anyone heard the word of truth from them about the current situation in Libya, Syria, etc.? Another attempt to present the case as if Assad does not support either the people or their own armed forces .. supposedly the Syrian people are waiting, they will not wait for the NATO air bombs on their own head to finally get off the bat.

    We see that Assad’s fears were not in vain. About these inspectors and human rights activists. Well, if the rats ran, then they feel that Assad won.
    It can be seen for a long time they worked for amers.

In the world, the crisis and Ukrainian goods were never of the highest quality so that the crisis didn’t affect Ukraine. Kennedy said don’t ask what the country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country. and you dream that Russia will come to you and that you will heal.

And let it fall into place with such thinking is far from advance. just as you thought the great German Fuhrer.

                        And I'm not going to prove anything to you ... only one thing I will say is my great-grandfather signed up as a volunteer in the first days of the war and did not return from the war ...

    And with us - what is it? Remember the year 91. Did you take the oath? And who betrayed is basically top management! And now, in the event of a change, who will betray Putin? Those who beat themselves in the chest and swear allegiance, continuing to steal.

    Most of the Syrian military elite belongs to the Shiite sect of the Alawites, which includes the country's president Bashar Assad.
    Well. Now they have announced sectarians! And the one who scribbled this little article to which sect belongs?
    And if you believe the words of the author about the loss - 7500 people per year (!), Then about any mass repressions and murders, where the dead are stacked and blood is knee-deep, as the Western media are trying to assure us. There is a fight going on with the "rebels", or rather with the bandits who are financed from abroad (weapons, equipment, instructors, food, support in the media, etc.). It is a pity for the civilian population who suffers during the hostilities. But these little guys (supposedly rebels) are hiding behind their backs. After all, the biggest losses are among them.
    And mind you, year! The year that Assad is trying to get down! And it doesn’t work out! And why? Wondered?

      Because Assad is supported by the majority, no matter how they unwind and publicize those who disagree good

    For the year, it was not possible to dump ten thousand mercenaries. There are options: either a larger invasion, or bribery. Donkey with gold is the most effective weapon. So, for example, it was in Iraq. So let's look at these rats, let the secret be revealed.

      and by the way, I looked today about Syria and it was today. Peaceful demonstration and soldiers opened fire on unarmed people. Here is the dictator’s support. If you suppress and people live in fear, this doesn’t mean that the Assad is held. to feel the difference. to judge superficially and condemn something that you don’t even have a clue is probably cool. and that makes you people with a capital letter
