Abdullah Al-Muhaysini runs the judicial system in Aleppo,
so how is it that Kerry is defending The Army of Conquest’s control on the

“We call upon the regime and its supporters to halt their
bombardment of opposition-held areas, especially in Aleppo, and to lift their
besiegement of civilians in accordance with UN Security Council Resolutions
2165, 2254 and 2258….” Secretary of State John Kerry’s statement after the
failure of the Geneva conference, which the the Higher Negotiation Committee
(HNC) withdrew from, following the SAA’s successful operations in ending the
siege imposed upon the towns of Nubl and Al-Zahraa just North of Aleppo for the
past three and a half years.

A source close to Syrian President Bashar Assad said to
Al-Rai, “The Americans were caught napping by the quick advancements on the
ground brought on by the Russian offensive, it turned the tide of the war and
now the Americans are contradicting themselves, UN resolution 2254 reaffirms in
point 8 the 2249 resolution (2015) that all member states should fight against
ISIS and Al-Nusra and all other groups, individuals that support them, and that
aforementioned ceasefire will not apply to these groups and
individuals and that they ought to be eradicated”

The source elaborates, “Secretary Kerry is not only going
against UN resolutions that he himself is quoting, but worse still he is
defending Al-Qaeda and their affiliate groups that are run by ex-Guantanamo
prisoners, so to stop the military operations around Aleppo against The Army of
Conquest is not solely about helping the citizens of Nubl and Al-Zahraa. The
main purpose of such a call is to prevent the SAA from eradicating Al-Qaeda et
al from Aleppo and its country side, these areas are not under siege since they
are linked to Idlib and the Turkish border”

The source continues, “The Army of Conquest controls Aleppo
whose judicial body is administered by Abdullah Al-Muhaysini who is a Saudi
national with links to Al-Qaeda, we believe, which is on the US terror list.
Their army consists of Al-Nusra, Ahrar Al-Sham, Al-Aqsa brigade, The Army of
Muhajirin & Ansar, they are located in, and around Aleppo with various
other groups, Al-Nusra has a judicial court in Haritan and Idlib and it has
control over granaries near the city of Al-Bab and cotton conclaves and the
tractor factory and other sources of supply, and Kerry wants them to remain
under Al-Qaeda control. As for The Army of Muhajirin & Ansar, the majority
of their combatants are from Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia, North Ossetia, and
Uzbekistan. There is no doubt that the US is not worried about those who are a
danger to Russia, and Kerry is defending them even if they were named on the US
terror list in 2014. They are calling for the establishment of the Khilafa
state, they are centered in Haritan, Kafr Hamza, Ma’arrat al-atiq, and in the
North of Aleppo, also around Nubl and Al-Zahraa, and Jabhat hatharat, and
Jamiyat Al-Zahraa district in Aleppo”

The source goes on “Ahrar Al-Sham was founded by Sheikh
Abu-Jabir who fought the Americans in Iraq, and was appointed as Amir of Aleppo
after the death of Abu-Khalid the Syrian, whose is labeled as one of the most
dangerous leaders in Al-Qaeda, he was also the special envoy to Al-Qaeda leader
Ayman Al-Zawahiri. Ahrar Al-Sham are key allies of Al-Qaeda in Aleppo, even if
they are separated from each other as organizations, its Al-Qaeda like behavior
looms large over its nature”

According to the same source Kerry is also defending
“Harakat Sham al-Islam” who were founded by an ex-prisoner in Guantanamo bay
detention camp, Ibrahim bin Shakran, (Abu-Ahmad Al-Muhajir) whose a Moroccan
national that was killed in April 2014, and was replaced by Mohammad Mizouz
(Abu-Iz Al-Muhajir), who was captured by US military personnel on the
Afghan-Pakistan border. He used to be in Guantanamo bay detention camp, and is
now fighting alongside Al-Qaeda in Syria and was named in the US terror list
back in September 2014, and there are other movements that are sponsored by
Turkey such as the Syrian Turkmen Brigade, Sultan Murad Brigade, Sultan
Muhammad Fatih battalion, Nur Al-Din Zinki movement along with others. All
these groups are cooperating with Al-Qaeda even though UN resolution states
that we are supposed to work together to eradicate them, and that the ceasefire
agreements does not include them.

But more dangerous is Moscow’s statement that it has
“strong grounds to believe that Turkey is preparing for a ground incursion into
Syria”. The source comments, “Russia has red lines that it will allow no one to
cross, Russia is preparing a strong Syrian military unit that will serve to repel any
Turkish ground incursions, Damascus has the right to defend its borders, and
will not stay silent anymore to any aerial violations of Syrian sovereignty,
and is preparing for any ground offensive by the Turks with aerial bombardment
and ground shelling. Russia considers any plane not operating within the
US-Russia coordination agreement to be a threat and will be shot down, Russia
has also taken further precaution by deploying the S-400 missile system, and has brought in Su-35 that is in service for the first time, and it has further
upgraded the Syrians’ MiG-29’s in case they are needed to repel any Turkish
advancements. The Kremlin wanted to send to Turkey a message that says any
incursion by you will be met by force not diplomacy”.
