ALEPPO, SYRIA (8:30 A.M.) – The Aleppo Shari’ah Council issued a fatwa on Saturday, calling the Turkish-backed “Euphrates Shield” offensive a “legal jihad” against the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

The council made this “jihad” permissible on Saturday because Turkey is a Muslim country and a staunch ally of the jihadist rebels in Syria.

Making matters even more complicated, several groups participating in this offensive are allied with one of the largest jihadist rebel groups: Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front).

In fact, one of the main rebel factions participating in Operation Euphrates Shield is now fighting in a coalition that includes Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham in southern Aleppo.

The U.S. has yet to comment on this statement issued by the Aleppo Shari’ah Council.

As jihad is the worst crime against humanity ever created and being even worst than nazism, it legitimises the right to ANYBODY to shoot them on sight without warning and to take no prisoners… But… Think about having hermetic bags with ice, due to what is following! By the way, I launch a fatwa against any form of jihad or any jihadist. You are entitled to take ANYTHING they have as war booty without sharing with any entity but more over, their organs can be sold to transplant clinics (a liver sells 80k€, a lung sells 20k€ and an eye… Read more »

Another one from the Qaeda franchise… Gollum did a SERIOUS mistake dealing with such gangs. The payback will be very painful. Sleep with the devil and then you must pay…
