We call all brothers from all the countries, please, my brothers we do not need men. Stay in your own countries and do something good inside your own countries. If you want to help us just send us weapons or funding or even pray for us but you do not have to come to Syria,” said Brigadier Selim Idris, head of a rebel military command.
(Those) who are entering the country have a negative impact on the revolution, because we need the help from (Western and regional) countries. Please understand this issue.
I don’t think the General is getting his thoughts across to the jihadis. Men from Chechnya, like Omar Abu al-Chechen of the Brigade of Migrants, are streaming into Syria. It is the next battlefield, jihad for them. They don’t see the state as a future entity, only the caliphate.
