The Jihadist Media Brigade has broadcast a video clip showing the treatment of Alawite captives, especially women, by rebels in Lattakia.
The clip shows scenes that were edited and deleted by Al-Jazeera in its report on the battle to liberating the Syrian Coast.
As such the clip has circulated with the title "What Al Jazeera didn’t broadcast about women captives in Lattakia."
In the original clip,the first person seen is Al Jazeera reporter Milad Fadel, standing in front of the camera beside a road sign pointing to Qurdaha, reporting that many tanks have been taken from the Alawite villages surrounding, Bashar Assad's hometown.
He says rebels are trying to liberate these villages in a battle they called "Aisha, the mother of Muslims."
After a brief summary of the field situation, there is a scene of children and women, in which one of the women says: "We are from the villages of Hambushiyeh, Nabbateh, Balouta, Barouda, al-Kharata…we are arrested by the jihadists. They captured us when they came to our village and will never release us unless until the Syrian regime releases their captives."
The woman, who covers her face with a black veil, continues: "We are about 105, they treat us well, but we ask the international community to intervene to release us in an exchange process with the jihadists."
Al Jazeera's camera moves to make an interview with one of the jihadists who says, "Thank God, we stormed Bourj Inbateh and the villages surrounding it, where we encountered violent resistance from the thugs of these towns."
The jihadist Abu Suhaib Allibi, Emir of the Muhajareen (migrants) battalion in Lattakia, continues, saying: "We found these women after the men ran away and left their wives, who were captured."
"As you can see," he says, indicating a woman shown being carried to an ambulance, "we provide them with good conditions and good health care and we treat them the way we are told in our religion…better than how their fathers and sons treat them and we provide them with what they need."
"We will also let them talk to their relatives as soon as possible," he says.
Abu Suhaib said that their only demand is for the release of captive women and children held by the regime.
