The January Officers’ Promotion List

Syria has promoted a host of officers from the Syrian Air Force to the rank of Brigadier reports Zaman al-Wasl.

Zaman al-Wasl has obtained January’s promotion list of the top 52 officers in the Syrian Air Force. 

Most of the top officers operate as military pilots who carried out deadly airstrikes on opposition areas during the nine-year-old conflict that claimed the lives of half a million people and displaced half of the country’s population. 

On Jan. 1, 2020, the Syrian regime army also promoted three Brigadier Generals who gained fame for brutality and killing, each in his field.

Most of the promoted generals come from Bashar al-Assad’s hometown in the coastal region and belong to the Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.

Syrian activists said all active officers in the regime army have been involved in war crimes against the Syrian people. 

In details, Brigadier General Pilot Tawfiq Mohamed Khadhour, originally from coastal Jableh region, was promoted to the rank of Maj. Gen. after his appointment as the Commander of the 22nd Division. 

The second Brigadier to be promoted was Maj. Gen. Mohamed Mansour. He was appointed as Deputy Commander of the 22nd Division.
