Updates from Kuneitra, Syria [video]

The Syrian Perspective

Syrian rebels groups captured the Syrian side of the Kuneitra crossing point between Syria and Israel, and Israeli officials and the IDF are very concerned by both the capture of the crossing along Israel’s border, as well as the advancement of ISIS within the Syria.

But not to worry, it appears that the Deputy Commander of one of the Syrian Rebel groups, a Lieutenant Abu Zid of the Nasser Tzalach A-Din force, passed on a message via YouTube to Israel, stating they will respect all international agreements (at least as far as we can understand his message).

In the first YouTube video, we see Abu Zid’s group of rebels touring the captured crossing.

But not everything is roses in Kuneitra, as we can see in another YouTube video, a different group of Rebels, these from the Jerusalem Islamic Liberation group, which, despite the ISIS flag, may simply be radical Islamists, and not actual ISIS members (but who can really tell, these days), also sent a message from Kuneitra yesterday.

It’s only a guess, but their message just looks and sounds slightly little less friendly. Maybe its just because of the name of their band of merry fellows.

Here’s another video from Kuneitra, this time of some of the battles, from what appears to be yet another different group of Islamic rebels (Jabath a-Nutzra, linked to Al Qaida):

The Syrian news site Al-Hayat is reporting that the UN troops from the Philippines have not been captured, have not put down their weapons, and are prepared to defend their position. The standoff is tense between the Filipino UN soldiers and the Syrian Rebels. There are between 75-81 Filipino troops still defending 2 UN positions.

I don’t know if these Filipino soldiers have restored any honor to the UN, but the people of the Philippines should know that they have soldiers they can and should be be proud of.

A Syrian Facebook page claims that some of the Syrian Army soldiers claimed sanctuary in one of the abandoned UN position, and the rebels haven’t managed to break through yet.
