Jisr al-Shughour, Syria
May 11, 2015

More than 200 Syrian government fighters, possibly including high ranking officers, are believed to have been besieged in the government hospital complex in the town of Jisr al-Shughour for more than two weeks. This is one of the few locations where Syrian regime forces still exist in Idlib province. Syrian government forces have failed to break the siege despite several airstrikes and ground operations.

This video offers an inside look at positions held by the Nusra Front within the wrecked hospital complex, which has become a battlefield. Rebel fighters control three of the hospital's four main buildings.

Rebel military commanders speculated in interviews that high ranking Syrian, Iranian and Russian military officers, as well as the governor of Idlib might be caught in the remaining building.

(02:10 – 03:53)

02:10
“In the name of God, peace be upon God’s Messenger, and thanks be to God. We are inside Jisr al-Shughour Hospital. Over there is the hospital’s main gate; here is the external clinics building behind me. This is the external clinics building. We are now in the hospital’s surrounding.
Q: We heard that high ranking officers from regime forces are inside the hospital. What kind of information do you have about this? And what is the approximate number of people inside the hospital, which you are now besieging?
A: The estimated number of people is 250. There might be high ranking personalities or the governor [of Idlib province]. There might be important personalities.
Q: In reaction, what did the regime do to break the siege and how did you manage to push back the regime forces?
A: It [the regime] is using all sorts of weapons, such as warplanes; it is trying with all sorts of weapons, but, thanks be to God, we are prepared to confront it. We shall retaliate with sophisticated and modern means. The regime will witness surprises in the next few hours.

03:26
We enforced a security perimeter with a radius of about five to six km and they could not withdraw. If they were able to withdraw they would have done it. Some of them withdrew but the others could not.
Our attack, thanks be to God, was very fast and we were able to enforce the siege unexpectedly. The perimeter we enforced on them was large. They were not able to withdraw. If they could withdraw they would have done it.”

SOUNDBITE (Arabic, Man) Unnamed Nusra Front Fighter
04:17 – 04:53
“We are now at the external clinics building in the National Hospital of Jisr al-Shughour. The infidel enemy is located in that building, which is a few meters away. We are now closing down on them with the help of God Almighty.
God willing, we will storm the building with explosive-rigged cars the likes of which the regime has not seen.
The men we have brought to fight you love death as much as you love life. We have brought migrant as well as local fighters. Thanks be to God.”

SOUNDBITE (Arabic, Man) Unnamed Nusra Front Fighter
(05:17 – 05:54) “This is not a prison. This is supposed to be a hospital. However, God’s enemy turned this into a cell to detain Muslims. Unfortunately, look how Muslims draw on the walls. May God help us. [UNINTELLIGIBLE] Prisoners had no knives or weapons and were placed in the second floor underground. May God help us; may God help us. God willing, we have come to cut your throats.”

SOUNDBITE (Arabic, Man) Abu Omar al-Zaybaq
(07:26 – 08:40)

07:26
“In the name of God, In the course of the hospital battle, thank be to God we are besieging [regime members] from all sides. Thanks be to God, we have controlled the three [main] buildings. There are one more building and the basement left.
God willing, we will soon be inside the basement where Assad’s gangs are located, which is where secrets are kept.

08:01
Q: What are these secrets? What is it that enabled people besieged in a single building to hold on?
A: God knows better, but it is said that the regime is so ferocious in trying to keep this hospital. God knows better, there might be high ranking officers, who could be Iranians or Russians. There could also be chemical weapons.
In the next few days we will bring you new information.”

Arsal, Lebanon
February 8, 2015

This video shows fighters from the Nusra Front in the outskirts of the Lebanese of Arsal, located on the border with Syria, conducting maneuvers with live ammunition. Video also includes rare interviews with two members of the Nusra Front acknowledging that their group is holding Lebanese soldiers captive and accusing the Lebanese government and Hezbollah of thwarting negotiations to release them.

The fighters also claim that the Nusra Front is protecting the Syrian refugees in Arsal.

At least 40 Islamist fighters in the nearby border area of Ras Baalbek were killed in clashes with the Lebanese Army on January 23.

Fighters from the Nusra Front and the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, took control of Arsal in August 2014 for several days and kidnapped dozens of Lebanese soldiers and security officers and executed some of them. Lebanese government forces regained control of Arsal while hills outside the town are still controlled by fighters from these two groups.

On February 13, 2015, following the broadcast of this video, the Nusra Front said that the comments made in the interviews here do not represent the official position of the organization.

04:09 – 05:06
“We are in Arsal because there are Syrian refugees. We are protecting them, God willing. What is more important is that Arsal is adjacent to Shiite villages, where there rawafidh [pejorative term for Shiites] and the Party of Satan [Hezbollah], who are slaughtering our children in Syria. We do not interfere in the politics of the Lebanese government. Had Hezbollah not intervened [in Syria] we would not have interfered with [Lebanese politics]. Concerning our numbers and equipment, we usually do not disclose information about this. These are military secrets. We are positioned on the frontlines adjacent to the Nussairi [Alawite] enemy in Syria. We ask God almighty to keep us steadfast and patient to exterminate this enemy.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic, Man) Abu Qutada al-Ansari, Nusra Front Fighter
05:07 – 07:04

"We are present in Arsal because there are Syrian refugees. We take care of protecting and supporting them, with the will of God. More importantly, Arsal is adjacent to the rawafidh villages and the Safavid Party of Satan. We do not interfere in the policies of the Lebanese state. Had the Party of Satan not intervened [in Syria] we would not have interfered with [Lebanese politics]. In the name of God,
We did not kidnap Lebanese soldiers, but we are negotiating with the Lebanese government. We are currently holding [the Lebanese soldiers] and they are in our care. Our demands are clear and are not costly for the Lebanese state: let the men and women out of your prisons and you shall be given the Lebanese prisoners immediately. It is not us who are complicating things. It is your government which is placing hurdles in the way of releasing them [the Lebanese soldiers]. Unfortunately, the Party of Satan was able to drag the Lebanese State into things that have bad consequences. [Hezbollah] is placing obstacles and causing the failure of the negotiations. Nevertheless, negotiations are still ongoing but extremely slowly. As I told you before, it is not us who are causing the negotiations to fail. "

Beirut, Lebanon

January 14, 2015

Dozens of families have set up protest tents in downtown Beirut to pressure the Lebanese into working on liberating their sons who were kidnapped in August 2014 by militants believed to be affiliated with the Nusra Front and ISIS.
Militants who crossed the border from Syria in the summer kidnapped 38 Lebanese soldiers and security officers. The kidnappers have executed several hostages and threatened to kill more of them if the Lebanese government did not release Islamist militants from prison.
Families of the hostages have been criticized by politicians and residents of Beirut for blocking the roads during protests.
Following a deadly suicide bomb attack on January 10 against the Alawite neighbourhood of Jabal Mohsen in Tripoli, which was claimed by the Nusra Front, security forces raided a building in the overcrowded Roumieh prison where jihadist inmates are held. The militants are believed to have led the bombing from inside their prison cells. Families of the hostages fear that these developments will affect negotiations to release them.

Soundbites

Soundbite (Arabic, Man) Hussein Youssef, father of kidnapped soldier Mohamad Youssef
(0:41-1:49) Twenty or 25 days ago, we, as families, decided to distance ourselves from the media, because at some point, media coverage was harming us. Maybe it was unintentional.We promised the prime minister to open the road and not escalate the situation or make any statements. But 25 days later, after we felt that we were not being dealt with seriously, and following the security procedures taken by the interior minister – we appreciate these measures by we think this procedure could have been made before or later. The prisoners of Roumieh have not been there since yesterday, they have been there for a long time, and this process could have taken place at another time. Anyway, the escalation that we are going to carry out will be proportional to the danger that we felt. For 25 days, we have stayed away from media and remained calm because we felt we have been treated positively. Now we have felt something negative so we are forced to escalate.
We hope that the government can take positive actions to stop us from escalating – not to stop us violently, of course, but to give us a reason not to escalate.

(01:54-02:34) SOUNDBITE (Arabic, Man) Hussein Youssef, father of kidnapped soldier Mohamad Youssef
“After what happened in the north in Jabal Mohsen and in Roumieh prison, I feel that we are back to point zero. This is what drove us insane and caused is to threaten to escalate and demand our rights. We hope that the threats against us are not serious and that we do not wish to block the roads and stop people from going to work. We are also human, and we feel people's pain. We do not wish anyone to suffer the way we are suffering."

I ask everyone to help us and help free our children, we are suffering, but now I am suffering more."

I call on Turkey and the Muslim Scholars Assembly, I ask Erdogan… we are Muslims and the kidnappers are Muslims. For the sake of Prophet Mohammad… This is a human cause. Please help us, and release the captives, interfere in our case, please interfere in our case, for the sake of Prophet Mohammad. We have been sitting on the road for the past four months; nobody is looking at us or has mercy on us.

November 2014

A fighter from the Nusra Front has revealed in an interview with a Transterra Media contributor that three months ago he was treated in Israel for a bone fracture and severed nerves in his arm.
He said he spent 10 days in an Israeli hospital.
The interview was shot in late November 2014 in the village of Bir Ajam in Qunaitra province near the Syrian-Israeli border.
The fighter appears in this footage wearing military fatigues with his right arm wrapped.
Rebels from the Free Syrian Army and the Nusra Front, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda, control territories in south Syria adjacent to Israel and the occupied Golan Heights.
This video also includes an interview with the head of a field hospital in the village, who said his makeshift treatment center lacks basic medical supplies and surgical equipment. The physician said that wounded militants and civilians who cannot be treated at his hospital are transported to “neighboring countries” without naming them.

NOTE During the recording of the interview with the fighter, the Transterra Media contributor was detained several times by the Nusra Front and portions of his recording were confiscated.

Their seriousness also varies. Some injuries are medium and others are critical and lead to death.
“[Regarding the services that the hospital offers] there is a shortage of basic supplies, such as sterilized cotton gauze, anesthetics and vital medical devices that should be available in every hospital. For example, the hospital lacks intensive care devices and oxygen. We have been suffering from a lack of oxygen for six months. There is also a lack of other supplies that cannot be mentioned for lack of time. “Patients are transferred to neighboring countries when they need special treatment, such as nerve surgery or blood vessel surgery.

Ras Baalbek, Lebanon
November 13, 2014

Christians living in the villages of Qaa and Ras Baalbek, near the Syrian border in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, have begun arming themselves against extremist groups from Syria. Volunteers are organizing village militias to protect their communities from Nusra Front and Islamic State militants whose plan is to extend their caliphate to the Mediterranean coast. Abu George and Michel, two militiamen from Qaa say that they received threats from Nusra Front after the Islamist group attacked and destroyed the Christian town of Maaloula, in Syria, in September 2013. Threats have multiplied after clashes erupted in the town of Arsal in August between the Lebanese Army and Islamist fighters who crossed the border from Syria. More than 20 Lebanese soldiers and policemen were captured in this incident, some of whom were executed.

    The municipality of Ras Baalbek has four men working as guards in the local police station. We stand guard at night and day, and when we encounter anything, we directly report it to the army, which takes action. There are six platoons from the [Lebanese Army] Airborne Regiment; there are soldiers from the Border Guard Regiment; and soldiers from the 8th Infantry Brigade are positioned on the border up there.

    Soldiers from the 8th Infantry Brigade position sometimes go on patrols. These mountains are empty; there is nothing there. There is fear that an infiltration might occur. It is very cloudy and we cannot see anything, and someone might cross over from there.
    We only fear that someone might sneak during the night, or even during the winter when fog covers the town. This why we stay awake all night long guarding the town. Of course we collaborate with the Lebanese Army

    Soon, when winter comes, the weather becomes very snowy and cold. Some of them [fighters] will have to escape the cold and eventually come to our village; this is why we have to have stand guard during the night with help of the Lebanese Army.

    If any [fighter] comes from the hilltops, the Lebanese Army will warn us. It will not be easy [for fighters to infiltrate] since they need at least two hours to get to the town. We would then have to move our children, women and elderly, and to defend our homes, honor and homes.

    There have been several infiltration attempts, which have been dealt with.
    Not long ago -- about 15 days ago -- an infiltration attempt took place and it was dealt with. These attempts are taking place in small numbers. They [fighters] have probably come to see whether there is someone who is vigilant or not, and they saw what they should see.

These people, despite the fact that they speak in the name of religion, are faithless and do not have no mercy on anyone; they do not have mercy on whoever they reach. We saw what happened to others and we do not want have to live the same experience. After what happened in Maaloula [a Syrian Christian town taken by Nusra Front], they threatened to do the same to us. They said they will do the same in one of the Christian towns of Northern Beqaa – our village is located in this area. This is a direct threat to neighboring villages and to us.

Al Qaeda-affiliated Rebels Execute Tw...
Raqqa, Syria
By Al Raqqa Hurra
16 Sep 2013

Al Qaeda affiliated rebels in Syria executed two Alawite men September 16 in the main square of the rebel-controlled city of Raqqa. Fighters from the “Islamic state of the Levant and Iraq”, a Sunni extremist group affiliated with Al Qaeda, justified the execution on the grounds that the men were “Nusaries”, a derogritory term used to describe members of the Alawite sect of Islam, from which Syrian president Bashar al-Assad hails.

When local women witnessing the execution protested the actions of the fighters, the fighters cursed the women and claimed that the men had raped women in the city of Homs. The men were subsequently executed and their bodies carted away in the back of a pick-up truck. This event has reinforced fears that Sunni extremists will try to eliminate the Alawite community of Syria if president Bashar al-Assad falls from power.
