March 3, 2016

On March 1 and 2, 2016, Jabhat Al-Nusra (JN) fighters used the hashtag on Twitter to encourage followers to join their ranks in Syria.

Sayf Al-Sudan tweeted: “Allah makes a way for those who came before you, why don’t you give it a try & put ur reliance upon Him?” He also tweeted: “They’re left with no shelter while u sleep & snore, No clothes 4 warmth, no food to eat, with z passin of days family members r killed. Even those wounded still wage war against the kuffar [infidels], they plead their way to istishadi [, martyrdom] ops while you refrain from matching forth.”
