Syria: Criticism Of Chechen-led Jaish al-Muhajireen wal-Ansar’s Treatment Of FSA Faction

In the wake of reports of an agreement between the Chechen-led foreign fighter faction Jaish al-Muhajireen wal Ansar (JMA) and the Free Syrian Army affiliated Shuhada Badr Brigade in Hraytan, Aleppo, pro-Free Syrian Army opposition activists moved to slam JMA for their treatment of Shuhada Badr.

Twitter user Mondass writes that JMA should have come to Syria to stand by the oppressed people and not to call Syrians infidels.

@THAERSORY, an activist from Hama says that the leader of JMA, Salahuddin Shishani, should choose whether to be like Sayfullakh Shishani (who would not swear an oath to ISIS) or like Omar Shishani, who chose the “criminal way”:

Jaish al-Muhajireen wal-Ansar are an independent Chechen faction in terms of the Syrian conflict, in that they have not pledged allegiance to any Syrian faction such as Jabhat al-Nusra or ISIS. The group remains loyal to the Caucasus Emirate (Imarat Kavkaz) and its leader, Dokku Umarov.
