After the “almost 100 percent” Defeat of ISIS, What about its Ideology?
May 2018 Al Jazeera report
The narrative in the West is dominantly shaped by a short-sighted interpretation of the root causes of terrorism. After the fall of the Caliphate, the challenge now is how to defeat the organization, its ideology in Syria, Iraq, and elsewhere.

Excessive Royalties at the Opposition Checkpoints in Daraa - Enab Baladi, Mar 3, 2018
Not so far from the Yarmouk Basin, many fuel merchants, in the city of Nawa, have also complained about the royalties that have been imposed by the checkpoint in Jalin Masaken, under the opposition, on the pretext that part of the fuel is going to the areas controlled by “Khalid Army,” which was negated by a fuel merchant in the city of Nawa.

He added that the responsibility of preventing the smuggling operations belongs to the factions, explaining that “the factions have forced a belt around Yarmouk Basin, and they have to stop smuggling, without imposing royalties on the merchants.”

The merchant complained about the extravagant amount of money that the checkpoint is demanding, pointing out that it exceeded the four thousand dollars, required on a daily basis in some cases; they are imposed in a systematic manner, not in an individual way.

According to the merchant, “Speaking about individualistic behavior is not convincing, for a fighter cannot take thousands of dollars from the people without the knowledge of his leasers.”

In a related context, a number of checkpoints, under the control and supervision of the “Dar al-Adel Court in Houran” (Justice), impose royalties with the help of receipts that carry the Court’s seal.

An official, in control of one of the Court’s checkpoints, “Abu Ali al-Mahameed,” explained that the Court has only two checkpoints of this type; the first is at the Court’s gate and the second is to the west of the Nasib town. The two checkpoints have receipts that carry the Court’s seal only.

As a response about the inquiries that tackled the Masaken Jalin’s checkpoint, al-Mahameed said that “al-Moutaz-Bellah Army” arrested the involved members, describing them as “bandits.”

Marwan Zain al-Abidin: Key Figure in Jaysh Khalid bin al-Waleed? - Aymenn. Mar 28, 2018
Marwan was reputedly in Saydnaya prison together with his friend Ibrahim Yunis al-Muqaddam (also originally from Tasil). As will be recalled Saydnaya prison was notorious for housing Islamist and jihadist detainees. The two were said to have been imprisoned there in 2004 on charges of Islamist/jihadist affiliations. In Marwan's case, he had supposedly been recruiting people to fight the Americans in Iraq.

In early 2013 though, Marwan and Ibrahim were apparently released from prison. On their release, they set up base in their hometown and created a small faction called Kata'ib al-Tawheed wa al-Jihad.
