The Syrian Revolution and the Ministry of Defense of the Syrian Interim Government lost one of their finest officers, Colonel Muhammad Bakkar, who was assassinated while he was in his workplace.
Colonel Al-Bakkar holds a PhD in Aviation Engineering and was among the first officers to defect from the Assad regime’s army in 2011. He took part in many battles on various fronts against the Assad regime forces and played an important role in organizing military action.
Investigation into the assassination of Bakkar is urgently needed to reveal the circumstances under which the crime took place; how the perpetrators managed to reach that place; and hold the perpetrators to account.
The enemies of the Syrian people and their freedom and revolution are well known to everyone: from the Assad regime, Iran’s terrorist militias, Russian mercenaries, PKK militia, to ISIS and Al-Qaeda.
We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Bakkar as we reaffirm our confidence in the Syrian people who have competent officers capable of carrying on down the road and accomplish the mission.
Glory goes to Bakkar who joined the fallen heroes who have been sacrificing their lives for the sake of the Syrian people’s freedom and dignity since 2011.
