A Syrian political source has told Sputnik that “the members of this organization have found themselves in a very tight situation as compared to the other groups fighting in Syria. It is known that they are Saudi Arabia’s instrument of pressure in Syria and have done a lot for their patrons a while ago when they were in control of the capital’s suburbs. It is also known that they had conflicts with Faylaq al-Rahman and Jabhat al-Nusra both of which are tied to Turkey and Qatar.”
“Insurgents from Jaysh al-Islam had been moved to the region of Jarabulus in northern Syria near the Turkish border. This part of the country is now under Ankara’s control, the troops deployed there are conducting the Operation Euphrates Shield and greet the incoming insurgents with hostility because they trust neither them nor their Saudi patrons,” the source from Syria said.
At the Security Council meeting, the Permanent Representative of Syria to the UN Bashar Jaafari said that Saudi Arabia will redeploy these insurgents for military operations against Yemen.
