Syria's Nusra (AlQaeda) leader calls on 'rebels' to escalate attacks on Assad's Alawite stronghold.(JPost).
AMMAN - The head of Syria's Nusra Front, an offshoot of al Qaeda Abu Mohamad al-Golani, urged insurgents on Monday to escalate attacks on President Bashar Assad's minority Alawite sect's strongholds in retaliation for what he said was the indiscriminate killing of Muslim Sunnis by invading Russians.
"There is no choice but to escalate the battle and to target Alawite towns and villages in Latakia and I call on all factions to ... daily hit their villages with hundreds of missiles as they do to Sunni cities and villages," Golani said.
