 By Ethar Abdulhaq

(Zaman Al Wasl)- From the al-Nusra Front to Christianity, so did the case of a young Syrian identified himself as Hassan Abu Hamza became globalized through various media outlets circulating his news especially as the young man directed the story of his conversion to Christianity in the form of a long narrative about his involvement in Jihad in Iraq and his detention for years in the terrible prison of Sednaya, and joining al-Nusra Front after his release from Sednaya. He assumed a leadership position in al-Nusra Front and he accused and insulted those who rebelled against the Syrian regime.

Zaman al-Wasl followed the story and research the roots of the young man and his history to provide readers with testimonies contrary to what has been promoted, especially about the jihad of this young man, and his relationship with to the Syrian revolution and jihadist movements relying on a selection of sources very close to Hassan’s family, friends and even his activism.

The surprise is that in the midst of working on Hassan's file was not only to reveal his agency to regime, but also to reveal that he was a very "ideal" model for the intelligence agents recruited by the regime. He is exactly the person who embodies the image of Assad's intelligence with all the deception and evil character and he might be even the extreme image of that where there is no recognition of taboos of any kind, and no commitment to the laws, even if they are the" laws "that are required by the gangs themselves.


ASSOCIATED WITH SHIITE  GROUPS


At first, close sources to Hassan confirmed that the young man is called Hassan Nayef al-Hilal, denying that he went to Iraq at any stage of his life, and that the young man has several brothers, one of whom was executed by ISIS about a year and a half ago. The other brother has been missing since few years ago. The latter is accused to be an agent of regime intelligence to try to divert the course of the demonstration broke out in his city, al-Tabaqa when the city rebelled against Assad regime whereas his brother Hassan was calling for a caliphate.

Our sources pointed out that the regime detained Hassan in the famous prison of Sednaya, where the regime insinuated among the "Islamists" detainees who discovered him and tried to retaliate from him, but the regime proceeded to transfer him to another detention.



Hassan known for its fluctuation and black history in working for the intelligence of the regime, according to our sources, Hassan was married with a Shiite woman residing in Homs. It is said that her origin goes back to Iraq which puts more signs of wonder about the tendencies of the young man who attacked the Islamic religion and its symbols and sanctities with the most insulting phrases when he appeared on one of the TV Christian missionary channels in addition to a series of stories through which he tried to demonize the Syrian revolution.

But Hassan's "wonders" do not seem to end, according to the media professional Muhab Nasser, one of Hassan's neighbors, and those who personally interacted with him as they used to live in the same neighborhood in al-Tabaqa city in Raqqa Province.

Nasser in his talk with Zaman al-Wasl reported that Hassan lied about going to Iraq to join the "Mujahideen", and then joining the al-Nusra as a Sharia person and even al-Nusra has sentenced him to death on the charge of being a regime agent.


FITTING BODY


Nasser reveals serious information about Hassan's imprisonment in Sednaya that did not have to do with his involvement in Jihad in Iraq or elsewhere. On the contrary, he was imprisoned for attempting to recruit himself for the benefit of the Hebrew intelligence (Mossad). He was arrested on that basis and incarcerated in Sednaya, but - ironically - to be a spy on the "Islamists", where he is said to have mingled with some of those who later became leaders of "jihadist" organizations after Bashar al-Assad released them in the summer of 2011.

During the invasion of Iraq, according to the testimony of Nasser, the regime recruited and cultivated Hassan among the young jihad enthusiasts, especially the Salafists. Hassan tricked some of them and contributed to their handing over to Bashar al-Assad's intelligence, just as Abu al-Qaqaa (Mahmoud Gul Agassi) was doing. Abu al-Qaqaa who al-Nayef can be considered one of his students, according to Muhab Nasser.

Nasser went further revealing what he called the fake name Hassan used when he was working for the intelligence of the regime. The fake name wasunder the name of Qasim Mekdad.

He continued indicating that the regime released Hassan in 2015 and sent himto Idlib to be a spy on rebel factions, taking advantage of the fact that his history is unknown in that province, unlike his region (al-Tabaqa).

Nasser said that Hassan remained in Idlib for about three months during which he worked to initiate dispute between the factions and then he left for Turkey and eventually to Germany. In Germany, he appeared to announce his conversion to Christianity to elaborate further in the narration of his novels.



Nasser described Hassan as a fraudulent and a man with multiple faces. Nasser said that Hassan’s body is fitting that he can wear many different outfits pointing out to his many different identities. He is a secularist when he promotes the secular market and a Salafist when it fits his interest and a Christian when he thinks his deal is a winner.

He confirmed that he met Hassan in one of the Turkish cities following his escape from Syria. The latter wanted to form a "political party" (he tried to meet there with a high profile people from othe opposition but failed), and showed no interest in religion.

In the context of the intensification of testimonies about him, our newspaper tried to communicate with one of Hassan's uncles in order to find out about other circumstances in the case of his nephew, especially that the uncle included in his personal page a publication about the transformation of Hassan "from al-Nusra front to Christianity," commenting: there is no sin after infidelity not after the infidel sin, but the uncle apologized with great respect.

The narrative of the previous close sources was confirmed and supported by the testimony of Abdul Karim Aliawi the close friend of Hassan since the years before the revolution. Aliawi told Zaman al-Wasl that Hassan was committed to one of the Sufi methods whose Sheikh was a military intelligence agent which paved the way for Hassan to be like his Sheikh an agent but working for air intelligence.

After a duration of time and upon orders by intelligence, Hassan left the ranks of his Sufi group and focused his attention on the group of "calling and reporting" (to regime) in his al-Tabaqa, but he was not of use in his city so he became a follower of Salafist Jihadist movements.

In order to complete his role fully, Hassan contributed to the formation of an
organization called "Lions of Tawhid Jihad in the Levant" in 2008 in the al-Tabaqa. It is an organization that included among its members Aliawi himself, and aimed at fighting the Shiite tide in Raqqa province especially in the city of al-Tabaqa. He began his propaganda activity through the distribution of leaflets, and then moved to armed action.

The first target of the organization was one of the symbolic figures of Shiisim in al-Tabaqa. The organization was planning to terminate Abu Haydar but it turned out that he was aware of and fled from the house before Aliwai broke into the house himself, and it turned out that Hassan himself informed Abu Haydar but Aliwai did not suspect his friedn back then and continued to work with him

Aliawi confirmed that Hassan had joined the Abu Qaqaa group in Aleppo for a while and then returned to al-Tabaqa. It seems that this was a session to improve the skills of the young man in the art of penetrating Islamist groups asAbu Qaqaa was one of the flags of this "school".

Ali and his colleagues ended up in the air investigation branch and stood in front of Jamil Hassan, who was the dean back then. The phantom organization was no longer allowed, especially since its deceived members actually planned and were about to terminate the air force intelligence officer in al-Tabaqa Lieutenant colonel Jihad.

According to Aliawi, Hassan was interrogated by Jamil Hassan because of his visit to Jordan and his attempt to enter the Israeli embassy there more than once. Thus, everyone was transferred to Sednaya, Aliawi and his comrades on charges of belonging to a terrorist organization and Hassan on charges of apparent attempt to spy in favor of the Jewish state. But the truth is that he was detained to spy on the detainees of the Islamists in Sednaya.

In prison, Hassan was revealed to the organization's comrades as well as to the Islamists so his mission expired, and the regime transferred him to the PKK prison wing where he carried out acts of harassment that led him to be place in individual cells more than once.

Later, the regime transferred Aliwai and Hassan and others to to Al-Raqqa prison as a result of the overcrowding of the Sednaya prison, and Al-Raqqa prison, Hassan was detained with figures who later became leaders in ISIS. Hassan was then transferred to Aleppo Prison, according to the word Aliwai.

SPYING FROM EUROPE

Finally, Zaman al-Wasl headed to a senior leader in the Army of Conquest responsible for the administration of Idlib province to ask him about Hassan and the fact of affiliation to al-Nusra Front (Fatah Al-Sham Front, then the Sham Liberation Organization) or other organizations.

The leader confirmed he was in direct contact with Hassan, who was arrested for about a month (summer of 2015), and that Hassan was keen to learn the stories of "jihadists" and their experiences in Syria and Iraq, which helped him to weave some of his novels which appeared on the media.

He stressed Hassan was not affiliated in any way to any faction of the Army of Conquest that he does not have a name included among the elements of this army to the multiplicity of formations, and that no one saw Hassan carrying weapons and or stand at a checkpoint or guard headquarters, and this what proves Hassan is lying.

The leader pointed out that the affiliation of Hassan to any faction in the province of Idlib was almost impossible because he is unknown, and not recommended in terms of security.

The leader revealed that Hassan tried to circumvent his position to obtain a detailed list of the names of the fighters in several battalions on pretext he was seeking, from his place in Europe, to collect material support for them in order to finance and arm them. Such an attempt specifically intersects with the testimony of our intelligence source who confirmed that Hassan could not have cut his intelligence ties or stopped his work as an agent.

The leader provided Zaman al-Wasl with a series of voice messages addressed to Hassan without a recorded response, but there were written responses succinctly from Hassan confirming that he converted to Christianity and ridiculing this leader who helped him one day to cross to Turkey. he hosted and gave him money to be able to complete his journey to Turkey until it came to Hassan to address the leader saying: "should I send you the price of bread?”
