My source says he has solid information that the Syrian authorities last
week secretly executed two intelligence officers in connection with the
investigation of Imad Mughniyye's assassination in Damascus. Upon
delivering the corpses of the dead to their next of kin, they were given
stern warnings against publicizing the execution.

My source confirmed that Asef Shawkat has been placed under house arrest.
He also told me that elements of the Syrian military security rounded on
March 29, 2008 a number of ranking army officers in their residences in
the Mazza suburb of Damascus. In addition, he said that Syrian security
officers opened fire last week on the vehicle of an army officer close to
Asef Shawkat on the road leading to the Zabadani mountain resort--11
kilometers from the border with Lebanon--on the eastern slopes of the
anti-Lebanon mountains.The pro-Shawkat officer emerged unscathed from the
shooting.
