Al-Qaeda Opens Complaints Department in Northern Syria City
by Zach Pontz
Al-Qaeda has made such inroads in Syria that its militia in the north-eastern part of the country has set up a complaints department, the United Kingdom’s The Daily Telegraph reported Sunday.
Having taken control of parts of the civilian administration in the city of Raqqa, the terror organization posted a new notice there this week saying it would receive complaints from members of the public.
“Any one who might have a complaint against any element of the Islamic state, whether the Emir or an ordinary soldier, can come and submit their complaint in any headquarters building of the Islamic state,” the notice said. “The complaint should be in writing, provide details and give evidence.
“We promise that we will ensure accountability for anyone committing violations, and they will be sent to the Sharia court of Iraq and al-Sham.”
According to The Daily Telegraph, The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham is the name al-Qaeda has given to its new merged operation in Syria and Lebanon.
