The Syrian government....

....is not going to like this at all.
Important steps have been achieved in the last few days by the Iraqi forces to arrest important leaders in the terrorist groups.

Some were arrested in Mosel and Baghdad including Arabs from Syria, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Sudan, Egypt, Yemen and others.

Adam Doma (42 years) from Sudan confessed that he received training in Syria under the supervision of Syrian Intelligence officers. He confessed that he beheaded 10 Iraqi civilians by his own hands so as he was given a leadership activity as Amer. He studied (Sunni Shariah) and lived in Iraq for 15 years! He confessed that he is a Syrian Intelligent agent. He was responsible for many terrorist activities including beheadings and recruiting Arabs in Syria and Iraq.

Some members of his network were also arrested including a terrorist from Egypt who decapitated at least 6 Iraqis and was responsible for attacks against Shiite sites and a terrorist group called the Net of Palestine responsible for attacks against Shiite mosques.

Anis Al-Essa is a Syrian who works as an officer in the Syrian Intelligence Security. He was arrested with Doma and after 3 weeks pretending as deaf and dump he collapsed and confessed about his role and his job with SIS.

Other terrorists who were arrested confessed that they received different kinds of training by the Syrian Intelligence Security and forces in Lathikiyah in Syria. Once they pass the courses the SIS facilitate their entry to Iraq from at least three points in Mosel and Ramadi. They then keep communication with SIS via tech and human communicative ways.

The confessions were video recorded and copies were sent via the Iraqi PM to the UN as well as to the Syrian government according to news sources.
As the evidence piles up and the pressure from Lebanon mounts (as well as from Europe and the US), it should be interesting to watch Syria's reaction.

UPDATE: Alaa has more.

UPDATE2: AP has covered the story as well, but they try to portray the TV channel, Al Iraqiya, as a propoganda front for the US and the confessions are characterized as "purported".

Wouldn't it be nice if they exercised the same caution in all their reports.
