Al-Nusra Mercenaries in Syria Slaughter Kurdish Women and Children

In-depth Report:

According to a report posted on the Al-Alam News Network, the al-Nusra Front has massacred 120 children and 330 men and women in the town of Tal Abyad located in a district of northern Syria that is part of the Al-Raqqa governorate.

Kurds in the area have recently formed militias to fight against terrorist mercenaries from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and al-Nusra Front.

Kurds have come under attack in Aleppo, Tal Aran and Tal Hasel. Terrorists have killed and abducted residents of the towns and forced others to flee.

Kurds say the attacks remind them of the al-Anfal campaign launched by former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in the 1980s. In addition to Kurds, the campaign launched during the final stages of the Iran-Iraq War targeted other non-Arab populations, including Assyrians, Shabaks, Iraqi Turkmens, Yazidis, Jews, Mandeans, and others.

In June, a former member of al-Qaeda accused Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani, the leader of the al-Nusra Front, of working for the CIA. “I personally believe that the leader of the Nusra Army who declared his support for Ayman al-Zawahiri is a CIA operative,” said Sheikh Nabil Naiim.

In addition to probable CIA connections, al-Nusra is said to be connected to Turkish intelligence. Turkey has waged a long and relentless war against the Kurds.
