The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” is elated at the moment, following a favorable deal with the Lebanese Government that secured the release of 26 members and affiliates of their organization from the Lebanese prison system.
Among the prominent prisoners released by the Lebanese Army this morning was the prominent Al-Qaeda Sheikh, Mustafa Al-Hujayri.
Hujayri has allegedly agreed to board a plane to Qatar and never come back to Lebanon, per the prisoner exchange guidelines that were negotiated by the Qatari officials.
Adding insult to injury to the Lebanese Government, the ex-wife of the self-proclaimed caliph of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), Sheikh Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, has been released to Jabhat Al-Nusra after she was apprehended last year by Lebanese security officials.
Baghdadi’s ex-wife was identified as Saja Al-Dulaymi – a Syrian national that divorced the self-proclaimed caliph after giving birth to his children in northern Syria.
The Lebanese Government released 26 Al-Qaeda affiliates and members in exchange for the 16 Lebanese soldiers that were captured by Jabhat Al-Nusra last use during their summer offensive in the ‘Arsal District of the Beqa’a Governorate.
The only media group that was allowed to be present at this prisoner exchange were Al-Jazeera and MTV (Lebanon).
