Al-nusra Front
4 June 2019 | by ibrahimz-32228See all my reviews

These people are from Al-nusra front which is belonging to Al Qaeda. Ironically the US government was not considering them a terrorist group and was supporting them with other groups which it calls resistance front against Asad's regime. If you watch Fahrenheit 9/11 by Michael Moore you can see that even Taliban in Afghanistan was not considered by USA a terrorist group until 9/11 itself. Until finally the US government forced to admit it that they are terrorist groups.
