WATCH: Syrian Terrorist Builds Armed Drone
In a new video, a Salafist jihadist named “Abu Al Baraa” is shown building an armed drone for the Syrian terrorist group Jund al-Aqsa, an ally of Al-Nusra Front aka al-Qaeda in Syria or al-Qaeda in the Levant. The video was shared by @Souria4Syrians, a Syrian activist and self-described Druze in Aleppo.
Like al-Qaeda, Jund al-Aqsa is currently fighting against the Islamic State along with the Syrian government and many other militias.
According to the BBC, “There are believed to be as many as 1,000 armed opposition groups in Syria, commanding an estimated 100,000 fighters. Many of the groups are small and operate on a local level, but a number have emerged as powerful forces with affiliates across the country or formed alliances with other groups that share a similar agenda.”
According to Chechens in Syria, “Jund al-Aqsa is predominantly made up of foreign fighters from Arab countries.”
Two days ago, The Long War Journal reported that Jund al-Aqsa “released a video showing one of its small drones dropping a bomb on Syrian regime forces in Hama province. The unguided bomb doesn’t appear to have been especially effective.”
