A few days ago, The Army of Conquest, a coalition of terrorist groups led primary by Al-Nusra and Ahrar ash-Sham, announced that in areas it controls in Northern Aleppo that it will implement Shariah Law. Some new introductions that are foreign to Syria include women being fully covered and not allowed to wear make-up.

In a recent announcement by Al-Nusra’s leader Jolani, he said that the group would not break its allegiance to Al-Qaeda, the terrorist group responsible for the death of over 3000 American lives on the attack of New York’s twin towers on September 11, 2011.

He had also said that they wanted to introduce Shariah Law as did the people of the Northern Aleppo province.

Most astonishingly, he confirmed the sentiment that has been said by realist commentators and journalist; that the supposed moderate and secular Free Syrian Army no longer exist. This has been known by careful followers of the Syrian War but largely ignored by Western leaders and media who try to convince the world that a secular opposition force exists in Syria.

Collaboration between Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army have existed for years with many FSA battalions switching allegiance to Al-Nusra and other terrorist groups like ISIS.

FSA battalions also make up part of the Army of Conquest.
