“Last week, ISIS announced the beginning of a new campaign dubbed “Expunging Filth“– the target of which was not Assad’s army, but the FSA-affiliated Farouk Brigades, a force of around 14,000 fighters.”

“They have often taken the lead on the front lines and played a decisive role in key battles, such as the conquest of the Menagh air base north of Aleppo, which had held out for the best part of two years before a concerted campaign led by ISIS that involved the use of suicide bombers.”

“From the moment foreign fighters came flooding into the country saying they were fighting for Jihad and for Sharia we knew it would end like this.”
