For criticizing poor quality of food and rationing in regime army | Security services arrest regime officer popular among loyalists
Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that the security services arrested an officer serves as lieutenant colonel, after criticizing the quality of food distributed to the military in the regime army.
The officer hails from Safita city in Tartus province, and is very popular among loyalists, as he was present at the Kuweires military airport in rural Aleppo during the battles and siege.
The officer criticized the poor quality of food provided to the military of the regime by a post on social media: “We endured hunger, thirst and siege, we endured heat and rain, we went through death and we did not die. We have withstood the hardships, but we cannot accept what is happening today. If you consider us animals, we want to let you know that our food is fodder and breeding, and if you consider us insects, we feed on waste, but we are human beings, more honorable and nobler than you, like it or not.”
“We want to ask everyone responsible for feeding the Syrian Arab army, do you accept your son to eat this?
Do you accept that we eat food that animals don’t like?
Where are the inspection and investigation committees?
Where are the military and security leaders regarding this systematic immorality?
What is happening on the military rations issue is untold and unthinkable. In whose interest is all that? Which one of you will accept this kind of food? Is this the country we are fighting for?
Is this a reward for those who sacrificed for their own country? You are a disgrace to the homeland, time and history, you are the greatest servants of enemies, we will no longer be silent, we will expose your corruption and tyranny”, the officer added.
The officer’s arrest sparked widespread anger among regime loyalists and they demanded the authority responsible for his arrest the release of the officer immediately.
