The head of the military intelligence of Syria was shot dead by a sniper in a battle with the opposition

46
The head of the military intelligence department in Deir ez-Zor, Major General Jaami, was killed in Syria, the BBC Russian Service reported. He was shot dead by a sniper during battles with opposition forces in the north-east of the country in the Al-Rashidia region of the city of Deir ez-Zor.


General Jami, among other senior officers of the Syrian special services, was in Lebanon from 1976 to 2005. His name was among those suspected of involvement in the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. In December, 2005, the UN investigators questioned him about this.

The confrontation of the Syrian authorities and the armed opposition, in whose ranks radical elements operate, has not stopped since March 2011, reminds RIA "News". More than 100 thousands of people became victims of the conflict.

Currently, an advanced group of the Organization’s Joint Prohibition on Chemical weapons and un of xnumx people. Mission members will have to ensure the complete destruction of the Syrian chemical weapons by mid-60.

        The officers of the tsarist army, real officers, not parquet sharkuns, always dreamed of dying that way, in battle, and not in bed.

        With all due respect ... the general, the head of the INTELLIGENCE should not be ahead of everyone "on a dashing horse". Setting tasks, analyzing information and preparing proposals for the command ... and the capture of "tongues" and interrogation of an adversary can also produce less significant figures familiar with the file.

      The Turkish army struck at the positions of the Syrian militants associated with al-Qaeda. The targets of the attack were objects under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and Damascus.

      Turkish servicemen attacked the positions of the militants after their artillery shells exploded near the Turkish city of Kilis, Interfax reports with reference to the British television and radio broadcasting company BBC. No other details have been provided yet.

          A normal game is played.
          With the victory of the opposition, Erdogan will be the first in the allies of the new Syria.
          If the opposition loses, it will also help the Syrian authorities defeat it. The essence of Turkey in all parties is the same, it always wins. And it is difficult for Syria to refuse such assistance - too unequal position.

        Not professionalism, excuse me. The intelligence chief has nothing at the front line to do and run with a machine gun, its value is a little different.

          Yes, the opposition also launched about 20 general attacks, but the events on the fronts suggest otherwise. Demolished almost the entire top of the gangs. Not a small merit of the general. His memory is eternal. Tell me dear, how can you give preference to those who rape and cut everything that moves and does not move in front of a secular, predictable and absolutely adequate Assad, or hatred blows one's mind.

          Based on the title of the article -

          , then of course I agree with you, the complete mess. But we read further -
          Major General Jaami, head of the military intelligence department in Deir ez-Zor, killed in Syria
          and EVERYTHING STAYS INTO THEIR PLACE ... The man "did not run with a machine gun", but as the Chief Executive in one of the provinces DID IN HIS BUSINESS and DIED AT THE WORKPLACE. Death of which many can only DREAM ...

              There are almost everywhere clashes of various sizes and varying degrees of intensity. And since the general considered it advisable to leave the cabinet, he had good reason for that. Anyhow, they are not appointed to any posts.

              PS On February 29, 1944, while leaving the army, Army General Vatutin was seriously injured. The general’s car was ambushed by the UPA. Despite the efforts of doctors, N.F. Vatutin died of blood poisoning in a Kiev hospital on April 15, 1944. You will not say in this case that it is not in the workplace?

        survived. the ordinary performance of official duties today is called professionalism and courage. this is what the generals have done. Now those generals who have a fat belly, excellent villas, expensive cars, bank accounts are in fashion.

      only there is a message that he was shot by his own people for "treason, which was eaten away by the military intelligence department." Earlier, it was repeatedly reported about the cooperation of military intelligence with jihadists - in Hama, Aleppo, Deraa, Homs and Damascus. "

    The opposite side monitored the movements of the general. It is unlikely that the sniper himself could so quickly classify the target. During the campaigns of Kazakhstan in 1994-2001, 12 Russian generals were killed. About half died as a result of planned assassinations.

      Well, of course, a bullet can’t take such a person from an ordinary machine gun. Only specially cast in the dungeons ... How many generals we have died on the front lines during World War II. Even in the Georgian conflict, when the Tbilisi army was retreating more than it was advancing, they almost parted with Khrulev ...
      Often, such officials do not like to show their weakness to subordinates and climb under bullets in order to set a personal example, and sometimes to acquire a certain image.

    I think it's a strange thing - there could be treason, there could be a bad reconnaissance, i.e. intelligence, and why the hell did the intelligence general climb, roughly speaking, "on an armored car"? I, just like you, want the victory of the Syrian army. But such losses are the result of poor organization and negligence, and even corruption in various structures of the army. Many Syrian officers studied in the USSR and Russia, but, probably, the percentage of trained specialists has decreased, therefore - high losses of the highest command personnel.
    This is a serious threat. Russia needs to be helped in training the officers of the Syrian army on a larger scale, otherwise the "great standing" of our ships in the Mediterranean will be ineffective - Syria will be strangled with a "sluggish glanders".

    And who ever told you that the United States failed? States initially did not want to climb into Syria. Obama once blurted out about the red lines, now it seems like there was nowhere to go, but thanks Putin helped him. You do not know what kind of agreement between them. I believe that Syria without chem. weapons - tired of everyone in the world. and the war in it --- strangely the same. (including Russia)

    Not so simple. here. what Lebanese media write
    The head of military intelligence, Major General of the Syrian army Jamaa Jamaa, who died the day before in Syria, was liquidated by the special services of Bashar al-Assad's regime, the Lebanese newspaper Al-Mustakbal writes.

    According to international investigators, Jamaa Jamaa was involved in organizing the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in February 2005. His name is also on the "black list" of the US intelligence services for supporting terror. The publication claims that the elimination of the head of the Syrian military intelligence is aimed at an attempt to hide the Assad regime's involvement in the assassination attempt on the Lebanese prime minister.

    Meanwhile, the official Damascus said that Jamaa Jamaa "died in the line of duty, pursuing terrorists." Recall that a high-ranking officer belonging to the intelligence structures of Syria died under unclear circumstances on the eve of October 17 in the city of Deir ez-Zor in the north-east of the country.

    After the failure of US diplomacy, special services enter the active phase.

    And who ever told you that the United States failed? States initially did not want to climb into Syria. Obama once blurted out about the red lines, now it seems like there was nowhere to go, but thanks Putin helped him. You do not know what kind of agreement between them. I believe that Syria without chem. weapons - tired of everyone in the world. and the war in it --- strangely the same. (including Russia)

    Dirty methods are as old as the world — who you can buy, who you don't need to sell, who you can't bribe — kill.

    Not so simple. here. what Lebanese media write
    The head of military intelligence, Major General of the Syrian army Jamaa Jamaa, who died the day before in Syria, was liquidated by the special services of Bashar al-Assad's regime, the Lebanese newspaper Al-Mustakbal writes.

    According to international investigators, Jamaa Jamaa was involved in organizing the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in February 2005. His name is also on the "black list" of the US intelligence services for supporting terror. The publication claims that the elimination of the head of the Syrian military intelligence is aimed at an attempt to hide the Assad regime's involvement in the assassination attempt on the Lebanese prime minister.

    Meanwhile, the official Damascus said that Jamaa Jamaa "died in the line of duty, pursuing terrorists."

    Yes, apparently he was a brave man. A real warrior! He defended his country from any "opposition" evil. Blessed memory of him!

    Major General Jaami, head of the military intelligence department in Deir ez-Zor, killed in Syria

    I, perhaps, in this life do not understand anything - but the chief of military intelligence should not get into ... uh, an event. For this, there are specialists specially (sorry for the tautology) trained for this. So he doesn't have them. He has no "heifers". And there are no specialists either. What kind of general is he then?

    Interestingly, the Islamist or NATO sniper handed out the brooks? In any case, someone got their thirty pieces of silver. Will he manage to spend Judah? Maybe they’ve already removed?

      Not necessarily 30 pieces of silver, it is quite possible that he is for the ideals of "higher" democracy, but he will never live a normal life. If he is local, then anybody is no longer alive, since no one is interested in in-depth coverage of foreign interference.

    It is unlikely that he just died. Most likely someone was hunted down or pointed. Do not forget that the "militants" are commanded by special forces officers from many countries, including Israel. Maybe it was an Israeli sniper .. Who knows. Only such a category for generals, it would be worth not forgetting that in the lists for shooting, they are in the first lines ... yes

    Army General Vatutin, as well as Chernyakhovsky, were front commanders, not intelligence generals. so your comparison is inappropriate.


    And why do you exclude that the affairs of the service required his personal presence in this place - on the front line?
    Maybe someone I met from intelligence, held a control meeting ...
    And the agent had little time and not him, but had to go to him? !!!
    Or maybe he sent someone very valuable and important to the rear ?!
