Profile for al-Komeet Forces: a #Tiger_Forces "storming unit" from Tartous led by Firas Issa (pic 1).

Group is approx company-sized (~80 men) and is the *only* known TF unit fighting IS in south Syria (now moving to Lajat).
Al-Komeet is particularly interesting bc they have close ties to both #Hezbollah and Bustan Association.

While Tigers fought IS in Reef #Aleppo in Jan 2017, al-Komeet was fighting in #Qaryatayn w/ #Hezbollah & al-Rashashat Battalion of the Bustan Association.
Firas & al-Komeet also fought with #Hezbollah in #Boukamal #DeirEzZor in Dec 2017 (pic) and likely w/ them in #Suwayda now where they cont to operate alongside Bustan’s al-Rashashat Battalion.

@kshaheen #ISIS is thought to have taken many prisoners - male, female & allegedly also children - during its attack in #Suwaida.

Hostage demands have reportedly been made, involving female prisoners.

Some local #Druze militiamen were beheaded already:
A trio of #ISIS suicide bombers attacked an #SSNP checkpoint in eastern #Suwaida overnight - at least 4 people were killed.

One of the #ISIS militants was captured alive & lynched in public, with an SSNP (essentially National Socialists/Nazis) flag tied to his corpse.
