ALEPPO, Syria – A major source of income for some of the jihadist groups operating in Syria is to kidnap civilians and random their freedom to their families.
One recent example has appeared with a video released on social media.
The Turkish-backed Sultan Murad Brigade are one such militant group that does this. The group, named after an Ottoman Sultan and made up primarily of Syria’s Turkmen minority, an ethnic group closely related to the Turks of Turkey, engage in such behavior.
The video shows a beaten and tortured man in the city of Al-Bab in northern Aleppo countryside, with demands for a ransom made.

However, it is unlikely that the mainstream media will publish such behavior from their “moderate rebels”.
