Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham Executes “Spy” Of US-led Coalition In Western Aleppo

The US airstrike on the al-Jinah village mosque

On May 18, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) executed a civilian named “Fawaz Ali al-Ahmad” in the village of al-Jinah in the western Aleppo countryside after accusing him of being a “spy” for the US-led coalition, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

Syrian opposition activists claimed that al-Ahmad had been responsible for an airstrike on a mosque in the village of al-Jinah on March 16, 2017. Between 40 and 60 civilians including women and children were killed in the airstrike carried out by two MQ-9 reaper unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs) of the US-led coalition.

Back then, US Army Central Command (CENTCOM) spokesman Josh Jacques confirmed that the US had carried out the airstrike on al-Jinah but said that the area had been “assessed to be a meeting place for al-Qaeda.”

However, the Human Right Watch said in a report, which was released on April 18, 2017, that they had not found any evidence to support the allegation that members of al-Qaeda or any other armed group were meeting in the al-Jinah village mosque when the airstrike was carried out.

According to local observers, the execution of al-Ahmad is aimed at hiding details of the al-Jinah massacre, especially that HTS didn’t release the evidences it had against him.

      Except for the “collateral damage” of, in this case, between 40 and 60 civilians including women and children. They deserve to live and be spared of all fighting!

    On the one hand terror groups have been known to have settled personal scores under the guise of executing collaborators, on the other hand maybe this guy was an informant for the CIA. One of many thinly veiled mafioso hits, either way.
