(Zaman Al Wasl)- Senior regime security officer killed Tuesday by unknown assailants in the desert town of Dumayr east of Damascus, local activists said.
General Nadim Kamel Asaad, the security officer of Dumayr military airport, was ambushed along with two Air Force Intelligence officers in the vegetable market in the town center.

The attack came three months since the town had been evacuated from rebels who fled to north Syria following surrender deals in the eastern Qalamoun region.

Lieutenant Colonel and Major were killed in the ambush, local activist Ahmed Joma’a told Zaman al-Wasl.

The slain brigaider Asaad was famed for his notorious service in Dumayr airport and being nvolving in war crimes against civilians. 

Dumayr, 30 miles (45) km east to Damascus, is situated on the remaining enclaves of ISIS  in Badiyat al-Sham. It's also also surrounded by Syria's most powerful military bases like Dumeir airport and ballistic missile launch facilities.
More than 125,000 pro-regime forces have been killed in seven years of brutal war, according to local monitoring groups.

The Alawites-dominated areas are still the main manpower supply for Bashar al-Assad's regime. The mourning posters and statements have been sweeping the streets and social media pages.
