A leader of al-Nusra Front terrorist group disclosed the plot of the rival terrorist group, ISI, to launch a massive terror attack on the Lebanese army on the first days of the Muslims’ holy month of Ramadan.
The Lebanese Assafir newspaper quoted one of al-Nusra Front ringleaders as writing on his tweeter page that the ISIL seeks to attack the Lebanese army forces in a Northern province early Ramadan.
“The ISIL is becoming prepared for staging a big operation in Tripoli on the first day of Ramadan against the Lebanese army. The operation will possibly be commanded by Abuqatadah, an Iraqi national,” the al-Nusra Front ringleader said.
Meantime, Assafir voiced suspicion over the al-Nusra revelations, describing it as a psychological operation or an act of rivalry between al-Nusra Front and the ISIL terrorist groups.
The clashes between Al-Nusra Front and the ISIL have prompted 60,000 people to flee towns in a number of regions in Syria.
Reports suggest that hundreds of militants on both sides have so far been killed in the internecine clashes.
The local sources in Syria confirmed on Saurday that a senior ISIL leader was killed in clashes with rival Al-Nusra Front terrorist group in Al-Qalamoun region.
Abu Bakr al-Raqawi, who was in charge of ISIL’s intelligence affairs in Al-Qalamoun region, was killed in heavy clashes between the two main Takfiri terrorist groups in al-Flita region in al-Qalamoun.
Al-Raqawi was from Reqqa, a region in Northern Syria, who joined the Free Syrian Army (FSA) with the outbreak of the crisis in Syria in March 2011. After almost all FSA members defected to other terrorist groups, Al-Raqawi joined Al-Nusra Front; but he later changed his decision once again and joined ISIL recently.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
