The FSA's al-Liwa a-Sadis brigade issued an announcement Wednesday clarifying the circumstances of Jabhat a-Nusra's Monday raid on their headquarters in the Jabal a-Zawiya region of Idlib province.
On Monday, Nusra abducted al-Liwa a-Sadis's top general and military commander, placing them at the front of large military columns and entering the al-Liwa a-Sadis-held town of Ein La-Roz in Jabal a-Zawiya. Using the men as hostages, Nusra entered the village and raided stores of humanitarian aid, weapons and ammunition.
Nusra captured the Liwa fighters who did not manage to flee, Juma al-Idlibi, alias of a citizen journalist in Jabal a-Zawiya, told Syria Direct on Thursday.
Nusra attacked the village “because it is the highest peak in Jabal a-Zawiya, and looks out of Sahl al-Ghab...and the entire southern Idlib countryside,” he said.
Nusra and al-Liwa a-Sadis had signed a previous non-aggression agreement with Ahrar a-Sham moderating. The FSA brigade imparted full responsibility on Ahrar a-Sham for the breach of trust.
