“Al-Nusra Front” Kidnaps “FSA” Leader in Syria’s Daraa

The so-called "al-Nusra Front" kidnapped a "Free Syrian Army" [FSA] commander in the southern province of Daraa in Syria, days after he announced the formation of the latest FSA group dedicated to battling extremists, as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Sunday.

 The so-called "al-Nusra Front" kidnapped a "Free Syrian Army" [FSA] commander in the southern province of Daraa in Syria, days after he announced the formation of the latest FSA group dedicated to battling extremists, as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Sunday.

Ahmed Fahad al-Na'ameh who is a commander and the personal bodyguard of Ahmed al-Jarba, the head of the Opposition Coalition Council, was kidnapped by "al-Nusra Front" militants in Daraa on Sunday.

"Al-Nusra Front last night arrested the head of the Military Council of Deraa, Capt. Ahmad Naameh, along with five other commanders of opposition factions," said the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Right.

The incident came as the so-called "al-Nusra Front" signaled it would abide by the latest directive from the al-Qaeda terrorist group's leader Ayman Zawahri to halt its campaign against the so-called "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" [ISIL].
Naameh had traveled from Jordan to Deraa last week to help unite rebels fighting to topple the Syrian government, excluding those of the "al-Nusra Front" militants.

In a video recorded recently and distributed by the Observatory, Naameh said: "Who is going to rule Syria? Not the extremists ... who behead people ... No, it will be the Free Syrian Army, which is well organized, and which believes in democracy, democratic rule, and the civil state."

The Observatory's Rami Abdel-Rahman told AFP that Naameh was likely to have been detained because of the statement, while "al-Nusra Front" accused him of delivering the town of Khirbet Ghazaleh in Daraa to government forces.
Some activists in Daraa have also blamed him for allegedly engineering the kidnapping of rival rebel fighters in collusion with the government, as well as mismanaging funds allocated for fighters and military equipment.
On Sunday, "al-Nusra Front" set down its conditions to stop battling "ISIL" after several months of battles against each other, particularly in northern and northeastern Syria.

"We will follow the orders of ... Ayman al-Zawahri ... to stop any attack on our part against ‘ISIL', while continuing to respond whenever they attack Muslims and all that is sacred to them," "al-Nusra Front" said in a statement.
"As soon as ‘ISIL' announces the end of its attacks on Muslims, we will spontaneously stop firing," said the terrorist group, adding that it had only fought "ISIL" in areas "where it was on the attack."
