Quneitra - SMART

On Sunday, the Syrian government arrested the commander of the Sabtin Brigade, formerly part of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), in the governorate of Quneitra, Southern Syria. The brigade recently signed a reconciliation agreement with the Syrian government forces.

On Monday, a local source told SMART that the air intelligence branch arrested the commander of the Sabtin brigade, Khuder Hlehel, as he was crossing an illegal checkpoint in the area of ​​Abu Ghara in the town of Rafid in Quneitra.

The source explained that the reason for the arrest is not yet clear. The source stated that Hlehel, the commander of the most prominent faction in Rafid, had already visited the Syrian government branch in the town of Saasa and received a number of its officers for lunch at his home last week.

The source also added that members of the military security in Saasa arrested three people on charges of working with the Islamic State. One of the arrested people was a former official at the Rafid Hospital. The official was released after two hours "because the Syrian government wanted cars and mechanisms at the hospital."

In July, the FSA reached a reconciliation agreement with Russia. The agreement included an immediate ceasefire for an "unspecified duration," and a settlement on the fate of those who decided to stay in Quneitra, which includes a general amnesty and not to prosecute civilians, defected soldiers and officers.

The agreement followed a Syrian government military campaign in Quneitra, which killed and injured civilians. Hundreds of families evacuated to the adjacent Daraa governorate, which reached reconciliation agreements with Russia, and to the border of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
