Labib al-Nahhas, Ahrar al-Sham’s Chief of Foreign Political Relations, condemned the Islamic State’s (IS) November 13, 2015 terror attacks in Paris, and stated that Syrians have suffered similarly under attacks from the Assad regime.

In a series of four English-language tweets, Nahhas called the Paris attacks “despicable” and compared them to those attacks suffered by the Syrian people under the Assad regime:

(1/4) The only possible reaction to the despicable acts of terror in Paris is total and unequivocal condemnation. #ParisAttacks

(2/4) Syrians suffered terrorism at hands of Assad's war machine for 4.5 years. We know how it feels. #ParisAttacks

(3/4) Terrorism is an indivisible whole: Assad cannot create Daesh in Syria and then help in the global war against terror. #ParisAttacks

After his comparison, Nahhas followed up that the international community needs to “take a hard look” at its partners in the war on terror:

(4/4) The Int. community should take a hard look at its policies in Syria and carefully choose partners in war on terror #ParisAttacks
