However, since a jihadist coalition who mobilized and launched their attack against the Syrian Army in early 2015, the town has been under jihadist occupation.

Saudi Arabia, although officially denying it, has been one of the key backers of militant groups in Syria, particularly ones affiliated to Al-Qaeda. This is just the latest occurrence of Saudi weapons being found in the hands of Al-Qaeda affiliates in Syria.
