Anne Barnard needs to know more about Ahrar Ash-Sham (again, Western media promoting Bin Ladenite terrorists)

"Ahmad Kara Ali, a spokesman for Ahrar Al-Sham, said in an interview that his group would not allow any other group to “monopolize power” in Idlib. “We are counting on the awareness of the Syrians and the rebels not to let any of the parties to repeat the experience of Daesh,” he said."  In fact, Ahrar Ash-Sham, as  this writer of As-Safir explains, is still under the direct sponsorship of none other than Ayman Adh-Dhawahiri.  And one of its leader, Abu Hafs, is an old friend of Dhawahiri, and some mentions him as one of the founders of Al-Qa`idah in 1998

PS What is hilarious is that Barnard refers to Ahrar Ash-Sham as "ultra-conservative" as if we are talking about a political party seeking representation in the Swedish parliament.
