Daraa - SMART

On Wednesday, opposition military factions in Daraa detained the founder and commander of the Khalid Ibn al-Walid Army, which is accused of affiliating with the Islamic State (IS) in the al-Yarmouk basin area in the Daraa governorate, Southern Syria.

On Tuesday, well-informed sources reported that  Abu al-Muthana, the founder and commander of the Khalid Army, surrendered along with his followers to local fighters in the town of Heit. The fighters detained Abu al-Muthana and did not hand him over to the factions of the city of Tafas.

The sources noted that the prominent commander’s fate in Daraa remains unknown, but the opposition fighters executed 50 members of the Khalid Army when the fighters arrived in Heit. The fighters handed other members of the Khalid Army over to the opposition in the city of Tafas on their way to the as-Suwayda steppe to exchange for the civilians abducted by the IS a week ago.

The sources added that Marwan Zein al-Abideen used to be a prisoner in aSyrian government prison and was released at the start of the Syrian revolution. The sources noted that Zein al-Abideen had large amounts of weapons and money.

The sources noted that Zein al-Abideen is from the town of Tasil in Daraa and he supervised the training and Shari’a courses of the Khalid Army in the al-Yarmouk basin area. Zein al-Abideen is considered the "Godfather" and "mastermind" of the crimes of the Khalid Army in Daraa, according to the sources.

Hours ago, opposition military factions executed 50 members of the Khalid Army who surrendered in the town of Heit, which they seized recently.

The reconciliation agreement did not allow the Syrian government forces to enter the  town of Heit; however, the agreement stated that local opposition factions can stay in the town to fight the Khalid Army.
