In a new incident revealing the real face of Idlib ‘moderate rebels’, a former fighter of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham assaulted on May 15 a local religious scholar.

The militant, Abdulrahman al-Satim, and his relatives stormed the house of Ghazwan al-Samak, the imam of the al-Bala’ah mosque in western Idlib. The imam was reportedly beaten and humiliated by al-Satim. Photos showing the imam under the feet of the militant were shared by opposition activists on social media.

Activists familiar with the incident said al-Satim, who is infamous for his radical views, attacked al-Samak because he violated a very minor rule related to the Adhan, the Islamic call to prayer.

The incident led to a backlash against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham as al-Satime, known as “Abu Baker,” is an ex-security officer of the terrorist group.

In an attempt to whitewash its image, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham arrested al-Satime on May 16. The terrorist group distanced itself from the militant by claiming that he was fired more than a year ago for ill practices.

The move of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham didn’t play out as the group expected. Opposition sources revealed that the assault on al-Samak was not random. The imam is reportedly known for being an opponent of the group, and a big supporter of Turkey and its militants. This was apparently the main reason behind the incident.

The assault on al-Samak came at time when many Western “experts” are working to whitewash Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. Some are even claiming that the al-Qaeda-affiliated group is becoming less radical and calling to keep Greater Idlib under its control.

looks like an ape raped their mother and they are the product :D

The Man

I think its mother was an ape as well… The Yanks can sure pick their proxies! But also, the traitorous imam should FO to Turkey if he’s so infatuated with their leadership or keep his effin views to himself. He was asking for it when he blabbered his mouth off in a rat-infested shit-hole that is Idlib and when you have armed shites like this ape wandering about!


Nothing new my friend. This is very very well known, even for Russia.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

My sympathy for the guy in the photo soon evaporated when I read the story, Pro Turkish, kick him harder.
HTS is unwillingly becoming Assad’s herd of incendiary pigs, just stap on the dynamite and point them in the right direction, then lite the fuse and quickly kick them in the butt, off they go, BOOM.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
