Hayat Tahrir al-Sham Pushes Another Re-Branding Initiative, Seeks To Absorb Remaining Militant Groups In Idlib

FILE IMAGE

On Friday, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) general commander, Hashem al-Shikh Abu Jaber, said during the Friday prayers speech in Binish village in the eastern Idlib countryside that HTS is ready to dissolve itself if all other armed groups in Idlib governorate do the same.

“They told us you have first to dissolve Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, we said we are ready to dissolve the organization that was built as a tool not as an aim, under the condition that other groups dissolve itself and follow a joint command,” Abu Jaber said.

The suggestion included forming a joint police force in Idlib governorate under the command of the HTS civilian administration. Opposition sources claimed that Turkey was behind the suggestion.

In his speech, Abu Jaber also attacked Russia and the USA, and accused the whole word of working to end “the Syrian revolution”.

HTS took over Idlib city on July 23. Since then HTS has been trying to establish itself as the only legitimate power in Idlib. HTS even founded a “civilian administration” to manipulate the public opinion.

On August 3, US special envoy to Syria, Michael Rantley, issued an official statement in which he blamed HTS and its civilian administration. Rantly even said that US will not stop other powers from launching a military operation in Idlib if HTS sizes the entire governorate.

      He is a no one and no obscure connection with Mohammed as the egg farmer has and why he was chosen, this one because he is a good token terrorist for the USA west/JewSA East (Israel/Saudi Arabia)

    I say this on syria live map yesterday evening and thought SF would bring it as yet another rebranding. Which it is. I’m of the opinion that we should never call this group by whatever name of the week they’re using. Just always Al-Qaida.

      Exactly

      The Syrians have a name for them all and that is what I am now going to refer them to as Daesh which covers all these terrorist groups except the YPG/PKK which is has been rebranded as the PYD Turks with little or no Syrian language which you can only call Kurdish terrorists. The Turko-Kurds infested Syrian North long ago and had pushed many foreign groups that worked alongside the Arabs out, PKK terrorists took control then and are not about to let the Syrian Kurds any control. They already treat Arabs worst than second class citizens not unlike the Israelis treating the Palestinians both have lived in those areas for thousands of years.

        You mean to say that kurds treat arabs the way turks and arabs treated kurds?

        Like wiping out their cities, gassing civilians, wholesale ethnic cleansing, deathsquads etc etc?

        Oh my, those poor arabs. They are not even allowed to kill kurds anymore, the ultimate discrimination.

          The funny thing is these are the Arabs who welcomed them as refugees to protect them , seems the Kurds just hate Arabs and want control no wonder the Turks don’t like these particular Kurds as many other Kurds hate them for terrorizing everyone.

    Once ISIS Is finished the SAA and its allies really need to wipe these twats out they can call themselves anything they like, but in reality they are Al-Qaeda

  • hhabana

    This piece of shit needs to die. The Syrian government needs a 10 Most Wanted and this garbage should be on that list.

  • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

    This clown thinks he is the Osama Bin Laden what a joke he will be killed once his usefulness is done with they may keep the idea before they kill that. The thing is he has no wealthy family members and not a member of the Sauds either, so his fate is sealed.

  • jason sixx

    HTS is “playing” the game cleverly. They know that if Turkey wants any influence on rebels, they need to suck up to HTS. Soon they will be supplying arms again to HTS, newly branded so Turkey can wash its hands in innocence.
