Shaykh Robert Ford on why the Bin Ladenite Ahrar Ash-Sham is a good terrorist organization

"Of course, the real question is how Ahrar fighters behave on the ground toward minority groups. Here Ahrar’s record is problematic. Its fighters appear to have been involved in extrajudicial killing of Alawi civilians during fighting in Latakia in 2013, and there are accusations that it desecrated Christian sites in Kasab in 2014. But the group also issued a video showing its fighters visiting priests in April 2015 to reassure Christians of their safety."
