Anti-Assad activist draws balance of rebel presence in Aleppo

The following acts of crime and injustice were not carried out by the Nusra Front but by “moderate” rebels

“Rebels…had very little regard for the lives and property of the people, and would…
– systematically loot the neighborhoods they entered
– kidnap for ransom and execute anyone they pleased
– deliberately vandalize and destroy ancient and historical landmarks and icons of the city
– strip factories and industrial zones bare…hauling their Turkey to be sold at a fraction of its price
– shell residential civilian neighborhoods under regime control with mortars, rocket fire and car bombs, causing death and injury to countless innocent people



“Moderate” rebels long before Jabhat al Nusras “rise to fame”

In the “heydays” of Syrias “secular freedom fighters” prior to Al-Nusras rising

Iraqi border guards had witnessed the Free Syrian Army take control of a border outpost, detain a Syrian army lieutenant colonel, and then cut off his arms and legs.

“Then they executed 22 Syrian soldiers in front of the eyes of Iraqi soldiers,”
