Syria’s Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham Congrats The Taliban On ‘Conquest’ Of Afghanistan

On August 18, al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib, congratulated the Taliban on their successful “conquest” of Afghanistan.

Two days earlier, the Taliban solidified its grip over Afghanistan after entering the capital Kabul and taking over the Presidential Palace. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani resigned and fled the country to the UAE, where he is now taking shelter.

In a statement, HTS hoped that the victory of the Taliban will encourage the international community to support “the will of the Syrian people”.

“We, from Sham al-Ribat [‘Sham of Frontline Manning’], bless our brothers of the Taliban and our people in Afghanistan for this clear conquest, asking the Lord to bless the Syrian revolution with strengthened victory, by which the land should be liberated, and the bond broken, with rights returning to their people, and justice prevailing in the shade of the Shari’a of al-Rahman [i.e. Islamic law of God],” the statement reads.

The statement was not a surprise. HTS’ supporters and radicals within the Syrian opposition have been celebrating the victory of the Taliban as it was theirs.

HTS enjoys good relations with the Taliban. Recently, the Taliban condemned the killing of the group’s spokesman Abu Khalid al-Shami. The spokesman was killed in Russian and Syrian strikes that targeted Greater Idlib on June 10.

Furthermore, Imam Bukhari Jamaat, a Taliban-affiliated Uzbek terrorist group, have been fighting alongside HTS in Greater Idlib for years now. The Syrian and Afghan branches of the group have sworn allegiance to Mullah Akhundzada of the Taliban.

The MSM have been working hard to whitewash HTS and present it to the world as a moderate, reformed force. Nevertheless, the terrorist group itself have been promoting itself to radicals as “the Taliban of Syria”.

These scumbags should be wiped from the face of the earth as soon as possible.


Taliban = HTS
Gaddafi = Assad

Can’t wait when Syria is finally free from all the terrorists. The SAA will win. These western backed terrorists know they aren’t long for this world.


Sadly Al Qaida and HTS are now embolded. A “sunni crecent” from Hamas to HTS to ISIS to Iranian sunni seperatists, to Balochistan to Talibs to TTP in Pakistan to Uyghurs.
Its a huge strategic mess for anyone in the world but Sunni muslim extremism.
The ripple effects will be felt from Russian caucasus to China to Shias to EU to Africa to US for decades to come.

Oops!! Western backed moderate head hacking Apes congratulate the Taliban on their victory,embarrassing for the West lol!


Yeah, and those here that gloated about the Talibs coming to power, should now finally wake up what this means: Empowering Sunni Muslim extremism and political Islam.
Russians know this, but the avarage westerner or east european here seem not.
This is bad news for anyone but Al Qaida, HTS, Turks and the Muslim brothers.
Which many here seem rightfully to oppose in Syria, Yemen and Lybia. But somehow in Afghanistan they are your “freedom fighters” like Reagan.
Cognitive dissonance.
PS: Not that it was not obvious it would happen, but gloating about it and being happy about the Sunni extremists winning, ONLY because they fought against the US and not Assad?? Hypocrites.


shut it and go and jump high scumbag


Yeah wanna be Attila you prove your high culture by being unable to write even a single argument. Your prophet would be proud.
And “jump high”? Like the Talibs on the trampolin video? ;) You can’t even swear comprehensibly.
Funny dude. Enjoy your mess of a “country” you build in Idlibstan.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
