 (Zaman Al Wasl)- Hayat Tahrir al-Sham arrested local journalist who had interviewed senior commander criticized the former al-Qaeda affiliate for not defending its territory in northwestern Syria and for the 'impoverishment' of its fighters, activists said Wednesday.

The Idlib-based photojournalist Ahmed Rahal made an interview on Monday with Abu al-Abed Ashda'a, a former member in Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, who revealed how the militant group had abandoned its fighters and blocked financial compensations and salaries.

.Ashda'a described the group as a private and corrupt emirate

The formerly-known Jabhat al-Nusra has detained and killed most of its opponents, including citizen journalists and human rights advocates.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) said in August that 2,000 Syrians were forcibly disappeared by extremist group. 

Tahrir al-Sham arrested an orthopaedic surgeon last week after being chased, shot on his foot, beaten and insulted for hours.

Most of Idlib province and parts of neighboring Aleppo and Latakia provinces are controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.

Like ISIS (Daesh), Tahrir al-Sham wants to create an Islamic state of its own, according to the Independent. That dream makes the whole region under its control in northwestern Syria a ground for violations and abuses.
The eight-year-old war has claimed the lives of 560,000 and forced 13 million people from their homes, half of whom have left their shattered homeland.
