The conglomerate of Al-Qaeda and Free Syrian Army (FSA) factions that form the joint group “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) have recently targeted Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya, besieging these predominately Shi’i towns inside the Idlib Governorate from all defensive flanks.

Leading this operation in Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya are the Islamist rebel groups – Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”  – two factions that been portrayed by the Syrian Opposition as legitimate rebel forces, despite their radical ideologies and ruthless treatment of disobedient civilians in their controlled areas.

It should come as no surprise that many of these Islamist combatants have an illustrious history of terrorist activity in the region, stemming from their fanatical support for radical groups that promote Shari’ah Law and a misinterpreted form of Islamic jurisprudence.

On Friday night, many of these aforementioned Islamist hardliners were killed by the civilian-led “National Defense Forces” (NDF) inside the town of Al-Fou’aa and its surrounding area.

Among these dead Islamist hardliners was the former aide to Osama bin Laden – Sheikh Abu Al-Hassan Al-Tounisi- he was allegedly fighting with the Syrian rebel forces at a number of sites in the Idlib Governorate.

The aforementioned terrorist is of Tunisian descent and a veteran of the U.S. War in Afghanistan (2001-present) – he was part of the rebel group “Companions of Osama bin Laden”.
