In the night of Monday, January 20, 2017, the militants “Jaish Khalid bin Walid”, which is considered a branch of Terror grouping “Islamic state” (ISIS, prohibited in Russia) suddenly attacked their rivals from the jihadist Alliance “Hayat Tahrir al-sham” led by the terrorists of “jabhat al Fatah ash-sham” (DFS, banned in Russia) in the South-West province of Deraa.
This article will show some of the many instances of the Free Syrian Army and other “moderate opposition” working alongside extremist groups. It will also make clear that cooperation between these groups is not a recent development. Extremist groups presented in this article include Jabhat al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham, Jund al-Aqsa and even ISIS.
At this point in the fighting killed at least 100 fighters of the various factions on both sides, and Jabhat Fatah Al-sham came to completion, as the militants deported from the enclave in Darayya, sided with this group.
“This madness must end. We must stop arming terrorists. The Government must end this hypocrisy and abide by the same laws that apply to its’ citizens.
“That is why I’ve introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists bill—legislation based on congressional action during the Iran-Contra affair to stop the CIA’s illegal arming of rebels in Nicaragua. It will prohibit any Federal agency from using taxpayer dollars to provide weapons, cash, intelligence, or any support to al-Qaeda, ISIS and other terrorist groups, and it will prohibit the government from funneling money and weapons through other countries who are directly or indirectly supporting terrorists,” concluded Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.
A main Islamist group in Syria pledged allegiance to former al-Qaeda branch Jabhat Fateh al-Sham on Sunday.
The militant group of Jund al-Aqsa said in a statement that its fighters swore allegiance to Fateh al-Sham.
Opposition forces fighting in Aleppo received for the first time American weapons that are normally designated for forces fighting the Islamic State (ISIS). The opposition’s takeaway is that the United States does not object to preserving the balance on the ground with the Syrian regime, even if doing so indirectly bolsters Fateh al-Sham.
