Free Syrian Army members, under the name of the Farouq Brigades, run during a combat training in the Syrian town of Sarmada, in Idlib province, on July 9, 2012.

TAL ABYAD, Syria – The day started like a regular Sunday for Mohammad al-Daher, better known as Abu Azzam, the commander of the rebel Farouq Brigades in the vast swathe of eastern Syria called the Jazira, a region that stretches from the Turkish border to the Iraqi frontier and encompasses the three provinces of Raqqa, Hasaka, and Deir Ezzor.  He had a series of meetings in the morning in a number of locations in the bustling town of Tal Abyad on Syria’s border with Turkey as well as in the partially destroyed former police station that is the Farouq’s headquarters. And he was going to visit his mother.

By late-afternoon, however, the burly 34-year-old Raqqa native would be lying in a hospital bed – wounded by members of the ultraconservative Islamist group Jabhat al-Nusra (which the U.S. considers a terrorist organization with links to Al-Qaeda). Abu Azzam’s targeting has blown open a sharp rift and long-brewing conflict between the more-secular nationwide Farouq brigades and the Jabhat. The two groups are among the most effective, best organized and most well-known of the many military outfits aligned against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad — and the fight between them is just beginning.

The Syrian army is made up of professionals who are trying to keep the peace and know how to treat civilians and non combatants in accords with the Geneva conventions . On the other hand the terrorist opposition is desperately doing anything they can even attacking civilians who don't help them ,or take their side Just like thugs gangs do in the USA when they jump kids in their gangs , and are made up of a rag tag young impressionable uneducated stray dogs, farm hands and punks who want to take part in an uprising insurrection in order to make money and receive free training from the US forces for the upcoming jihad against the west. If you look very close at their eyes , you can clearly see at work the mind altering drugs their on .

?? Ahmadinejad of Iran has proposed forming a new group of 10 or 11 countries to work to end the 18-month Syrian civil war. The Bible says the leader of this 10 nation confederacy will be the anti-christ……….

Revelation 17:12-14.......... 12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast..........

Revelation 13:2-3.......2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.

Revelation 13:4....... 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

Psalm 83:........For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;And those who hate You have lifted up their head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. 4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
