They explained having received money, weapons and support from the international media, besides being offered senior positions and huge salaries if they were able to overthrow the government and establish an Islamic caliphate in Syria. Similarly they argued that many young people are being coerced to join irregular gangs through the use of religion and fatwas (Islamic ordinances) to develop a Holy War or

They also recognized that a significant percentage of so-called insurgents are followers of the ideology of the al-Qaeda terrorist network and that the entity intends to destroy the secular Syrian State at any cost in order to put an Islamic State in its place.
