After supporting the jihadists and Islamists of the Syrian Al Qaeda branch, the Jabhat al Nusra / al Nusra Front, for many months, also the government of the United Kingdom has finally decided to ban the Syrian Al Qaeda offshoot – and follows the steps of the US administration in Washington, also in their failed attempt to boost the overthrow of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government in Damascus by supporting jihadist and even Al Qaeda-linked groups in their fight against the secular administration of the Arab nation.
The ban of the Syrian Al Qaeda branch (Jabhat al Nusra / al-Nusra Front) now means that already the membership or any support for the extremist but finally very powerful Al Qaeda offshoot in Syria becomes a criminal offense.
The Jabhat al Nusra became very powerful in the recent months in some areas of Syria and expelled the still foreign-supported terrorists and criminals of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) from many regions.
The Syrian Al Qaeda branch was able, also with the help of the British and US administrations, to gain the full control above regions that were formerly controlled by the US-backed “Free Syrian Army” (FSA). Meanwhile, the armed infighting between both terrorist organizations is increasing in Syria.
The British government said already on Friday that it considered the Syrian Al Qaeda branch, the Jabhat al-Nusra / al-Nusra Front in Syria, for nothing more than a terrorist groups with alternative names for Al Qaeda, which has long been outlawed by the administration of the UK.
The ban of this Syrian Al Qaeda offshoot takes effect immediately, although it is not yet clear what this step could really mean now, under consideration that the British government still supports the terrorists and criminals of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) in Syria.
Meanwhile, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has targeted a convoy of the foreign-backed “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) terrorists on Friday. The convoy of the armed terrorists of the FSA was targeted by the units of the Syrian army in the area of Daraa, Aleppo (northern Syria).
Among this convoy of the terrorists of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) were some tank trucks and the foreign-supported terrorist group has tried to smuggle oil to Turkey – above the Syrian town of Alassaoh, located in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor.
The result of the attack by the units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) against this convoy of the FSA terrorists were 28 killed terrorists as well as four burning tankers.
Another units of the Syrian army clashed with a terrorist group of the Syrian Al Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra (al-Nusra Front) near the Syrian city of Homs. The terrorists of the Syrian Al Qaeda offshoot tried to seize the control over the al-Mohr gas field, located in the east of the Syrian city of Homs; but the terrorists had finally no chance in the clashes against the units of the Syrian army.
According to military sources from the Syrian army, also some clashes have taken place between units of the Syrian army and foreign-backed terrorists in the district of Waer, also in the Syrian city of Homs. The terrorists in this district of Homs tried to attack a military hospital but some of them have been left killed and wounded afterwards. In addition, the battles in the other districts such as Qosoor, Qarabis, Bab Hood, and Khalidiya are still continued between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the foreign-backed terrorist groups.
In the strategically important Syrian city of Aleppo (Halab), a units of the Syrian army had success to foil an attempt of the Jabhat al Nusra terrorists to infiltrate the district of Sheikh Saeed in the city.
Several armed terrorists have attacked some military points / checkpoints in the Syrian region of al-Bakar and Ein al-Deker, both located in the western countryside of the city of Daraa. Further intense clashes between the Syrian army and foreign-backed terrorists happened in the area of the National Hospital in Daraa.
