The Nasra Front arrested leaders accused of supporting al-Qaeda

The Nasra Front arrested leaders and “jihadists” accused of supporting al-Qaeda in Syria. Their names: Jordanian Sami al-Aridi, a former leader in the Nasra Front, Khalid Aarouri “Abu al-Qassam”, former deputy of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Iyad al-Tubasi “Abu Jleibib”, former military commander, another military leader, Abu Hammam, and about 50 fighters, mostly Jordanian.

The Nasra Front said in a statement that those who were arrested sought to undermine the entity of Front’s victory and spread strife and rumors. The Nasra Front considered them the head of sedition and confirmed that it would refer the detainees to a Shari’a court.

Some sources said that al-Tubasi was arrested at a checkpoint for “Liberation of the Sham” in the countryside of Aleppo. The organization justified the arrest of Abu Jleibib at the point between the liberated areas and the Kurdish units, noting that he was trying to go to Daraa governorate, while the judiciary wanted Sami al-Aridi and therefore he was arrested.

The “Liberation of the Sham” published a statement yesterday evening, in which it said that groups of people with restricted view and narrow perception of limit were against the orientation of the “Liberation of the Sham” from the outset, with the purpose to form a Sunni entity. They were not satisfied with this, so they tried hard to undermine this structure and destabilize it, spreading sedition and arrogance under various pretexts and different means, until they reached the level of slander and stupidity.

Western and Arab media reported in October that Zawahiri had assigned Hamza bin Laden to establish an al-Qaeda branch in Syria. The Nasra Front said through the security official Obadah al-Ahmad: “Detainees will be brought to the Shari’a Court to consider their case”.

Auxilia responsible in Syria. Born in Syria, Aleppo. I live now in the countryside of western Aleppo within the Syrian opposition areas. I studied law for two years only at al-Baath University in Homs before the Syrian regime arrested me because of an article published in the university newspaper. I was expelled from the university and moved to Qamishli, until the beginning of the revolution. I was arrested for the second time while participating in a demonstration. They were demanding freedom and democracy. I came out a year later and worked as a freelance journalist. I worked with the organization (auxilia italia) and with many local councils as a volunteer and the center of the news media and with the newspaper Alnba. As long as I love to travel and read about the history of peoples and religions. I believe that for you a person in this life has his own freedom. I also believe that all governments of nations stand against the freedom of people. Human rights in my opinions are a spider web strong in its weak form when tampering with it.
