in Apr 2013 Jamal Maarouf (ISIS big leader) was backed by The Saudi Arabia to destroy Syria regime, just in case KSA forgot… First Saudi Arabia started the funding and support and then they dragged Qatar and other GCC countries to get involve with terrorist activities… Just in case you Saudis forgot
The Islamic State of Iraq and ash-Sham (ISIS), a transnational ultraconservative Islamist group has been a thorn in the Syrian revolution since its inception in April 2013. The group is at the centre of a new round of infighting in rebel-held Syria.
Commanders frequently complained that Maarouf was more of a showman and warlord than a fighter, promising to participate in a particular battle, securing the funding for it from sponsors (mainly Saudi Arabia)
Maarouf has always been in Saudi Arabia’s orbit, but to date the Saudis haven’t markedly stepped up their assistance to their people, according to a Syrian weapons distributor responsible for dishing out Saudi state-sponsored guns and money to rebels in the north.
