    Al Qaeda militants, battling another armed faction, were rounded up, detained, and summarily executed by Daesh terrorists operating under the banner of Jund al-Aqsa in Syria.

    Both rebel factions, Al Qaeda (Nusra Front) and a group aligned with the Free Syrian Army (FSA), were engaged in deadly skirmishes in the Idlib and Hama provinces, when the fighting suddenly ground to a halt. Jund al-Aqsa fighters swarmed in a large offensive and captured an estimated 150 to 200 fighters. 

    The question of what to do with the prisoners after six days of detainment was solved when Jund al-Aqsa decided to "liquidate" all the prisoners "at the same time," according to Abdul Hakim al-Rahmon, a commander from the FSA-aligned Jaish al-Nasr faction.

    Al Qaeda and Daesh are seen as arch-rivals in the quest to be the dominant jihadist group in the region. 

    The Jaish al-Nasr commander said that 160 of those killed were affiliated with the FSA, while 43 were from Al Qaeda. A separate war-monitoring service reported that 150 fighters had been slaughtered during the mass execution.

      Keep it up the way they are going about it soon there will not be any terrorists left. This shows you that to be a terrorist you don't have to have any brains.

      PERHAPS, terrorists should be fair game to execute. Without calling it , war crimes.
      The world may VOTE for it.
      THEN YOU CAN run BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE.
      Russia will find you. IF it really into that.
      IF they did the diplomat killing in Turkey, find their biggest headquarter. And prep the BIGGEST Thermobaric bomb Russia can prep. And let them have it.
