Members of Lava al-Towhid Foreign Terrorist group, a branch of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA), started in-group fighting in Syria’s second largest city, Aleppo, on Saturday after several group members refused to obey orders for shooting the public and announced their defection.
The clashes took place in al-Fardos district of Aleppo after some members of the Lava al-Towhid refused to carry out the orders of their commanders for cracking down on protesters attending a rally against the foreign terrorists today.
Aleppo has been the scene of popular protests against rebel groups in recent days. A large number of armed foreign terrorists were killed during the in-group clashes.
The latest protest took place in Aleppo’s al-Salehin district where the protesters chanted slogans against the terrorists calling them bandits.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.
In October, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of stirring unrests in Syria once again.
The US and its western and regional allies have long sought to topple Assad and his ruling system. Media reports said that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.
The US daily, Washington Post, reported in May that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups battling the President Bashar al-Assad’s government have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.
The newspaper, quoting opposition activists and US and foreign officials, reported that Obama administration officials emphasized the administration has expanded contacts with opposition military forces to provide the Persian Gulf nations with assessments of rebel credibility and command-and-control infrastructure.
Opposition activists who several months ago said the rebels were running out of ammunition said in May that the flow of weapons – most bought on the black market in neighboring countries or from elements of the Syrian military in the past – has significantly increased after a decision by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Persian Gulf states to provide millions of dollars in funding each month.
