They come after a few months in which defections were limited to lower level troops only. When crews begin jumping ship at this rate, it's a sure sign of impending disaster.
Defector #1: General Mohamed Nur Izz al-Din khallouf Chief of logistics in the Syrian army--a potential rich source of information since he'd know details manpower shortages, what is stored in Assad's warehouses, etc.
Defector #2: Bothayna Shaaban, Assad’s political and information advisor fled to Dubai via Beirut. Her defection was not yet confirmed however, she was seen in Beirut International Airport boarding a plane heading to Dubai.
Defector #3: The defection of Brigadier General Muhammad Khallouf n his son in Daryaa was actually filmed by Alex, one of the subposters at Enduring America.
