BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Al-Qaeda linked Chechen jihadist group, Jund Al-Sham, has joined their rebel allies in the Idlib Governorate, as they attempt to beat back the government forces.

According to a military source in Damascus, Jund Al-Sham and its infamous terrorist commander, Muslim Al-Shishani, left the northeastern countryside of the Latakia Governorate for the southern part of Idlib.

This move by Jund Al-Sham comes after their allies from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) lost several areas to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Jund Al-Sham previously lost a lot of its fighters after they defected to the Islamic State (ISIS) in 2016; however, they are back to fighting under the banner of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

I think Vladimir Vladimirovich will hammer them the hard way : he clearly doesn’t want these morons back in Russia.

Chechen terrorists are well known to be Turkish-backed.

According to the website from Chechnya to Syria this story may be based on false ‘internet rumor.’

http://www.chechensinsyria.com/?p=25655

BTW, Chechnya to Syria is not a pro-jihadist website. The site is run by Joanna Paraszczuk, a ‘Russian Journalist/researcher tracking Russian-speaking foreign fighters in Syria.’

I’m sorry, please delete my comment. The information contained in this article is factual. I got this article confused with another article on another a website that stated that the subject of this article was fighting alongside the Turkish Military in their “Olive Branch” operation against the SDF in Afrin. My apologies, that is what I get for having too many tabs open on my browser.
