AL QAEDA CALLS TO FIGHT GUERRILLA WAR IN SYRIA

(FILES) -- A TV grab from the Qatar-base

Al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri has called for his Syrian Sunni jihadists to prepare for a ‘long battle’ against Syrian President Bashar al Assad and other forces.

Al Zawahiri has called on his followers to switch tactics and engage in guerrilla warfare as they prepare for protracted jihad [holy war] in Syria. He said: “In my humble opinion the strategy for jihad in Sham must focus on a guerrilla war aimed at wearing down the enemy and bleeding it to death.”
Al Qaeda’s Syria branch Jabhat Fateh al Sham (formerly Al Nusra front) is currently spearheading the attacks on the Syrian government as well as their Russia and Iran-backed allies in Syria.
