The conglomerate of Islamist rebel factions known as “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) has struck again in the Idlib Governorate; this time, they publicly beheaded a man that was accused of spying for the rebel leader, Jamal Ma’rouf.

Based on the video that was propagated by the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” on several social media platforms, the beheaded man was identified as Khaled Al-Sami – he was accused of spying for Jamal Ma’rouf and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who are currently combatting the Qatari and Saudi backed rebel fighters in northern Aleppo.

Recently, the U.S. backed rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their Islamist allies have declared war against the U.S. backed rebels of the Syrian Democratic Forces and their allies from the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) in the Aleppo Governorate’s northern countryside after a territorial and ideological dispute.

The largest rebel faction in the Syrian Democratic Forces is Jaysh Al-Thuwar; this aforementioned militia is comprised of fighters from the disbanded rebels groups of Harakat Hazzm and the Syrian Revolutionaries Front – they are led by Jamal Marouf.

The tensions between Jamal Ma’rouf and Jabhat Al-Nusra date back to their war last winter, when the aforementioned Islamist group kicked out the Syrian Revolutionaries Front from the Idlib Governorate and their allies from Harakat Hazzm from the Aleppo Governorate.
