A surprising connection was formed this week between a Syrian opposition element and IDF Spokesman Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai on the latter's Facebook page, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Friday.


A Syrian citizen named Abdul Khader wrote the following on Mordechai's Facebook wall: "We want to get rid of Assad and his regime and modernize Syria by promoting freedom of religion and freedom of thought. We do not want war with you and are definitely not interested in the Golan Heights."


An Arabic speaker, Mordechai replied: "I thank you for your words. We all wish for peace in our region and the fulfillment of our hopes for security, peace and co-existence."


Khader later wrote back, "Assad has an interest to keep Israel fearful of the Syrian opposition. But we genuinely want peace."
