BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – A large number of former rebels have joined the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) ranks in the Daraa and Al-Quneitra governorates this week, a military communique read on Thursday.

According to the report, approximately 7,000 men, many former rebels, were inducted into the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) recently as the military wraps up their winter recruitment class.

With these 7,000 new recruits from Daraa, the Syrian Arab Army has effectively inducted more than 20,000 soldiers into this winter class.

It is a good sign. It goes to show that these formal rebels have reconciled and want to be back. Hope & pray that they will realize that Syria is for all Syrians and not for outsiders. Divided we fall United we stand tall and strong.

Actually, these entered the “rebels” since there were barely no other jobs. Finding themselves jobless, now they enlist in SAA…

No es confiable, estos mercenarios fueron amaestrados con ideología radical y como perdedores de la guerra no deben tener los mismos privilegios que los de verdaderos patriotas.

Mercenaries are in for the money, money is their only true allegiance. As long as you pay them [good], they’ll stand by you. Just beware if others propose to pay them better than you do : either you raise their salaries or they may turn against you.
If they have ideology, they’re not mercenaries, in this case, they’re mujahideen. The problem is to comb since a mujahideen will for sure try to pose as a mercenary to back-stab you in the end.

Whilst this seems excellent news, I find my feelings to be slightly sceptical / worried; there has to be at least 1 infiltrator doesn’t there ?; hopefully not.

Now, send them into Idlib and let us see how that pans out.
