On his part, Abu Anas al-Shami, member of the media office of Fatth al-Sham, said that “Jama’at al-Murabiteen faction was formed two months ago after the four formations [al-Safwa Brigade, al-A’zm Brigade, al-Ghuraba’ Companies, and Mustafa Dahman Brigade] gathered,” explaining that the number of the fighters in Jama’at al-Murabiteen is more than 500, distributed in Atma and the surrounding border areas, in Zardana and the surroundings of Jisr al-Sheghour, and in Hama northern countryside.
