Urfa, Turkey – Prince of the Islamic State in the Syrian northern city of Jarablus, Abu Bakr al-Masri, sent on Wednesday a letter to the group’s militants calling on them to pursue opponents and prosecute them according to the group’s rules.
In a document classified as “secret and urgent”, of which ARA News received an exclusive copy, al-Masri addressed militants of the Islamic State (previously known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant ‘ISIL) ordering them to pursue Syrian civil activists who organize anti-ISIL activities in Syria, saying that “those should be brought to justice”.
Abu Bakr al-Masri, the Prince who ended his statement by his name and the stamp of the Islamic State group, said in the statement: “The ISIL militants in Aleppo State and Jarablus with its surroundings should monitor the so-called ‘Nama Organization’ and make the necessary action in their right after our review of the cases.”
This civil organization (Nama) defines itself as “non-governmental Syrian civil organization that is working on the Syrian land”, staffed by “a group of Syrian youth who aspire to a state justice and dignity”, according to activists.
In a phone call with ARA News, the executive director of the organization (who preferred to remain anonymous) explained that ISIL group did not interfere in the organization’s activities so far.
“We will continue our work as usual, no matter the consequences” director of Nama organization told ARA News.
On the other hand, the opposition-linked rebel group of the Islamic Front accused militants of the Islamic State on Tuesday of assassinating the leader of the Badr Brigade in the Army of Islam, Abu Muhammad Harun, with an improvised explosive device attached to his car.
The Islamic Front also accused the ISIL group of assassinating one of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement leaders in last May, after monitoring his movements.
Noteworthy, another document was published by activists online showing an order issued by the Prince of the Islamic State in Manbej city calling calling on his militants to bring one of the citizens to the general headquarters of the group in the city “to study his political views”.
According to observers, the Islamic State has developed a secret service network to pursue its opponents and collect information about their activities.
