Quotes

I called Lora Baytar, who lives in the village of Vakifli. She said 19 more people from Kassab were brought over yesterday. "They are all old. The youngest is over 70 years. They were simply picked up from their homes and hastily dropped at the border. The militants are emptying Kassab but they don’t want to cause bodily harm to the Armenians.”"
From Ali, the chief Angry Arab correspondent in Turkey:  "SNC leader Ahmad Jarba who has been begging western countries, to arm the "moderate rebels against Al Qaeda threat " toured Kassab front in northern Latakia countryside. 3This front was opened in 21th of March by al-Qaeda linked groups like Ahrar ash-Sham, Al Nusra Front as well as some hardcore Salafi-Taqfiri groups like Sham al-Islam and Ansar al-Islam and dubbed as "Anfal offensive". After 6 days of the severe clashes Al-Nusra, which is the leading force still in the front- announced that "No secular FSA brigades took part in the Anfal offensive" via its social media accounts . So obviously, Jarba has visited his al-Qaeda linked friends, while western media outlets published eulogies to praise him as "moderate leader that fights against both al-Qaeda and Assad regime". PS: In August while same groups, including Islamic State of Iraq and Sham were attacking Alawites' villages in northeast of Latakia countryside under the name of "Aisha the mother of all believers" ex-FSA chief Salim Idriss visited the front and just after a few days he called western countries "to arm them against al-Qaeda that was serving Assad regime""
A security source told the National Iraqi News Agency / NINA /that " the so-called the finance official of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant ISIS, Mohamed Abdel Hamid al-Assafi was also arrested. / End"
...bombers "took a number of hostages and killed four of them inside the building, which was used to receive visiting delegations," Reuters reported. "It was not immediately known where the other eight victims died."
