Syria won't be used as launching pad to target west, says al-Nusra chief
May 28 , 2015
The al-Nusra Front will not use Syrian territory as a launching pad to attack the west, Abu Mohamed al-Jolani, the head of the Al-Qaida-affiliated group, has claimed in a television interview.
He also said that his group would protect minorities in Syria who renounced the Bashar al-Assad regime.
Jolani did not show his face in the interview with the al-Jazeera network.
He said that al-Nusra’s mission was the “downfall of the Assad regime” in Syria along with its powerful allies such as Hezbollah.
