Condolences from Shaykh `Abd al-Hadi Kharsa:
There have been several videos showing how Imams were abused and taken away, as well as the attack on Shaykh Usama Rifa`i and his Mosque. I recall Shaykh al-Ya`qoubi mentioning in one of his videos [I can't seem to find back this exact video and quote yet either, will add this when I do] that nearly 100 scholars have been murdered by this regime for the past year.
