Usayfra said that he was tasked at first to spy on security and army checkpoints and report their location, numbers and the weapons they have to the terrorists, carrying out this task on a bicycle with a basket full of meat to make it look like he’s just an ordinary citizen doing his job, adding that he was also given an AK-47 rifle and used it.
He explained that the leaders of his group would plan robberies, entering houses they knew were vacant at the time and rob everything they could find.
Usayfra said that Khashman received weapons from a man called Sattouf al-Murei and distributed them among the group’s members who include Khaled, Omar and Ibrahim Khashman (ages 29,19 and 35 respectively) who used to sell fuel, with these three acting as informants and gunmen wielding AK-47.

Usayfra said that they would lure women to join them under the pretense of needing them to cook for them, then they would rape them, adding that this was justified by fatwas from terrorist Mohammad Imad who told them that everything the group’s members do constitutes jihad and that even sins become acceptable, including robbery and rape.
