The militants being supported by the West in the convoluted fight across the Middle East against terror organizations like ISIS and al-Qaida have been found to be fighting alongside … ISIS and al-Qaida.

That’s according to a report from Almasdarnews.com.

The organization said word from the resort city of Al-Zabadani confirmed that the Free Syrian Army, which is being backed by the democracies of the West, “is currently fighting alongside two terrorist groups.”

Those were identified as Jabhat Al-Nusra, which is a Syrian affiliate of al-Qaida, and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham, or ISIS.

The three groups are fighting, according to reports, the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and Hezbollah.

The report continued, “For almost a year, the FSA, ISIS and Jabhat Al-Nusra have been deeply entrenched in the vast Qalamoun and Western Mountains of Lebanon and Syria, while they attempted to maintain their strategic supply routes from the ‘Arsal District of the Beqa’a Governorate (Lebanon) amid relentless airstrikes from the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF).”

Almasdarnews.com said, “The Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah began a long-awaited offensive in the Qalamoun Mountains of Syria and Lebanon in April of this year, capturing over 250 square kilometers of territory from the FSA, Jabhat Al-Nusra, and ISIS after 46 days of non-stop fighting along the Syrian-Lebanese border.”

The Free Syrian Army, Jabhat Al-Nusra and ISIS have been holding off the attackers, but, “Now, with their backs against the wall, the three militant groups … have found themselves sharing the same trenches against the encroaching SAA and Hezbollah soldiers,” the report said.
