The leader of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam), Zahran Alloush, has recently conducted an interview with an unknown media group with the username “Backlight” on YouTube, detailing his internal conflicts with the leadership of Jaysh Al-‘Ummah (Army of Unity) and the civilian discrepancies inside villages located in the East Ghouta of the Rif Dimashq Governorate.

During the interview, Alloush was unwilling to accept blame for the issues that were transgressing inside the city of Douma between his militant group and Jaysh Al-‘Ummah. He would pin the blame on the blame on the rival group, despite numerous claims that his militants assassinated members of Jaysh Al-‘Ummah in Douma, including 2 senior members and the son of the latter’s leader, Ahmad Taha.

Alloush followed up his explanation about Jaysh Al-‘Ummah with his vow to rid the East Ghouta of drug trafficking and corruption. There have been numerous demonstrations and complaints in the villages of the East Ghouta over his monopoly on food prices that has agitated the remaining civilians in this area.
