The largest Syrian al-Qaeda group, Jabhat al-Nusra, executed 14 soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on Wednesday morning at an undisclosed site in the Qalamoun region, a mountainous area bordering Lebanon.

The soldiers were taken hostage by the Al-Nusra Front two weeks ago under unclear circumstances.

Jabhat al-Nusra said the executions were retaliation over the SAA and Hezbollah attacking Harira village overnight, a site in the Wadi Baradah region northwest of Damascus.


95% of the Syrian-Lebanese border is controlled by the SAA, Lebanese Army, and Hezbollah – however, jihadist groups ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra remain stubbornly present in the mountainous region between Qalamoun and Arsal.

Constant coverage of these head-chopping incidents does not seem to serve the interests of good journalism. Terrorists expend great effort distributing these videos and you are facilitating the process.

Your readers already know these are EVIL men and we don’t need a reminder.

This is starting to feel like a propaganda war; CNN blames Russia for bombing civilians so RT comes back with more execution videos. All of this is disgusting and not telling us anything meaningful about Syria. These innocent victims deserve better than to be used as click-bait!

I think the same things values for al-Nusra, anyway, Daech are nothing else than a al-Qaeda in Iraq that merged with the Saddam gang…

Considering how easily the Jihadists can travel in and out of Syria, this has to be one of the more idiotic things to come out of an Obama apparatchick’s mouth. And that is no easy feat to accomplish.

We know al-Qaeda are terrorists – so please do not publish their videos as advertisements help them

Just FYI I have confirmed info that the Lebanese army is lighting nusra’s a*s up on the border in revenge for the murder. We might not be directly coordinating with our SAA brothers, and many of our politicians are infact terrorist supporters, but the mutual respect for the armed uniform is still alive and well, and nusra is currently tasting some really really nasty 155mm shells

Muslims could pioneer and be the sole inhabitants of the first Mars colony and dopes like you would still blame the US when they started sawing each others heads off.

The SAA and other Syrian forces should do the same to all rebels captured by them. And post the videos too. Eye for an eye.
