DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:00 A.M.) – On Saturday, the renown Abu Omarah Regiment announced it would merge with Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS), an Al-Qaeda affiliated group known to be the largest insurgent faction in Syria.

The Abu Omarah Regiment – a prominent faction in the Fatah Halab operations room – rose to fame in the battle for Aleppo which nevertheless culminated in the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) taking full control of the city in December, 2016.

With the remnants of the Islamist group evacuated to the western Aleppo countryside, a few hundred fighters were on the verge of disbanding but have now decided to join HTS instead of leaving the battlefield.

The Abu Omarah Regiment was accused by Amnesty International of conducting war crimes on the Kurdish-held Sheikh Maqsoud district last year, including a chemical attack and indiscriminate shelling.

With more and more jihadist factions joining what was previously known as the Al-Nusra Front, HTS now boasts a fighting force of some 50,000 militants.

Well, Datuk, as AMN is heberged in the EU, now we know his IP.
I just hope he’s in my country : showing public support to a terrorist organisation is very likely to take you to jail!

I support anybody sending jihadists to their 72 virgins (y)
As grand-dad used to say about Nazis or Fascists, as jihadists are Naislamists or Islmofascists,
a good jihadist is a dead jihadist!
And, as we are… Na’al ‘dine bebek!

Worldwide positive intelligent in every field of society are requested, kindly highlights and introduce “Existentialism” thought among world people along with simultaneously putting diplomatic and military force for keeping the peace and sustainable development world. Slowly such experiment would stop the worldwide war, civil war, political clash, communal riot and terrorism. May find the “Existentialism” thought through video.

Existentialism is mostly Sartre and Nietzsche philosophy. I don’t think any of them would said anything good about any imaginary friend some call their god. Existentialism is in some ways, much closer to nihilism than theism, LOL!
“God is dead”-Nietzsche

Now, an interesting quote about Scientology :
“If you want to become a billionaire in dollars, the best way is to create a religion”
– L.Ron Hubbard, 1962
Héhé.
Mostly the case for any religion : using weak minded suckers as your servants, exploiting how naive they are 😉

The way I see it.the more rebel groups that join HTS the better. This is good news! Because HTS is still listed as a TERRORIST group by the US Coalition forces. This means that Russia and Syria can bomb the s**t out of them and USA can’t complain! This is GREAT NEWS! So we should be happy. The more “US REBELS” who join HTS the better. Just makes them a h**l of a lot easier to kill! They were always an enemy to Russia and Syria. But now they are an enemy that is easier to kill. This rebel internal… Read more »
