Moderate 13th Division has been working with Jabhat al Nusrah & Jaish al Fatah, Syria

Western deemed moderate group the 13th Division, one of the first groups vetted and supplied with US military aid such as TOW anti tank missiles, has been discovered working with fundamentalist Sunni Islamic groups Jabhat al Nusrah and the coalition Jaish al Fatah (Army of Conquest), to capture Aziziyah village though more groups were allegedly involved.

The location of the assault that involved groups listed above was the village of Aziziyah/Azizia in the countryside South of Aleppo during November 2015.

The Long War Journal reported on the capture of the village Aziziyah, among others, on the 24 November 2015 (just two days after the videos released by the 13th Division) by the Army of Conquest coalition and Jabhat al Nusrah.

Images, reports and videos have been posted on Youtube and Twitter on the 22, 23 & 29 November 2015 by the 13th Division, the Islamic Front (part of the Army of Conquest / Jaish al Fatah) and Jabhat al Nusrah claiming the assault then capture of Aziziyah.

Two tower structures can be seen in the videos uploaded by the 13th Division, Jabhat al Nusrah and the Islamic Front. The taller tower structure is a water tower, the second smaller tower’s use is unclear.

The Islamic Front is part of the Army of Conquest (Jaish al Fatah) Coalition that also includes fundamentalist groups like Sham Legion and Ahrar al Sham. It is also affiliated with Jabhat al Nusrah (al Qaeda in Syria).
