In Syria, Tensions Persist between Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and al-Qaeda Loyalists

Al-Zawahiri recently released a short video entitled Oppression, in which, unsurprisingly, he warns against oppression. The video features at the end a quotation from Ibn Taymiyya, saying, “God will support the just state, even if it is a disbelieving one, but He will not support the oppressive state, even if it is a believing one.” It could also be that this criticism is directed at the experience of the Islamic State, or perhaps it is directed at both the projects of the Islamic State and HTS.
